Murder-Suicide Attack in Beirut Kills Five
By Harold Hutchison
A murder-suicide bombing in Beirut, Lebanon left five people dead, and wounded dozens. The bombing was the work of al-Qaeda, but the target may sound unusual.
According to a report by Jim Kouri, the National Law Enforcement Examiner, the target of the al-Qaeda attack was Hezbollah. While both are deadly terrorist groups, al-Qaeda follows Sunni Islam, while Hezbollah, which counts Iran and Syria as patrons, is Shia.
