Remembering 9/11: 12th anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center
[Pics] Many feared dead in 'chemical' bombing near Damascus
Bombs killed 29 in Lebanon's bloodiest attack since war
Two powerful explosions killed several people: one rocked the city centre near the home of outgoing Prime Minister Najib Mikati, the second one struck near the port of the restive city with a Sunni Muslim majority August 23, 2013. The explosions come a week after a suicide car bombing killed 27 people in a Beirut stronghold of the Lebanese Shiite movement Hezbollah, which is fighting alongside Assad's forces.
