World Bulletin / News Desk

Footage from security cameras showed a man rushing towards the outer wall of the Iranian embassy in Beirut before blowing himself up, causing the first of two explosions in the area, Lebanese officials said on Tuesday.

The officials who watched the videos said the second explosion was caused by a car bomb parked two buildings away from the embassy.

Iran's foreign ministry said that the blast was the work of Israeli mercenaries. 

Syrian information minister Omran Zoabi to al-Manar has come out with a similar opinion, saying that Israeli and Saudi intelligence are behind the explosions.
