Fatal blast near Iran Beirut embassy


Seven people have been reported killed as an explosion struck near the Iranian embassy in the Lebanese capital Beirut.
Conflicting reports say the blast could have come from rockets or a car bomb.
Several buildings were damaged in the blast on Tuesday morning, eyewitnesses said.
Iran is a major backer of the Lebanese Shia militant group Hezbollah, which has sent fighters to Syria to back the government of Bashar al-Assad.
