Two Suicide Bombers Kill 9 in Lebanon's Tripoli; Al-Qaeda's Syrian Branch Says It Waged Attacks

Two suicide bombers killed nine people and wounded 37 others today (January 10, 2015) in an attack on a cafe in a flashpoint Alawite neighborhood of the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli, according to the Newsmax World website.

Al-Qaeda's Syria branch claimed responsibility for the attack in the Jabal Mohsen neighborhood.

"Nine people were killed and 37 others wounded," the health ministry said in a statement.

Lebanese security forces believe the bombers lived in Mankubeen, a majority Sunni neighborhood just 500 yards away from Jabal Mohsen.
