At least 22 people have been killed and more than 140 injured in a double suicide bombing outside the Iranian embassy in the Lebanese capital Beirut.
The Iranian cultural attache, Sheikh Ibrahim Ansari, is among the dead, according to the Fars news agency.
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.

The Sunni jihadist group Abdullah Azzam Brigades said it was behind the attack.
The head of the al-Qaeda-linked group described the attack as a “double martyrdom operation carried out by two heroes from the heroic Sunnis of Lebanon“.

The conflict in Syria has increased sectarian tensions in its smaller neighbour.
Lebanese Sunni Muslim fighters have joined forces with the mainly Sunni rebels in Syria. Some of the rebel groups are affiliated with al-Qaeda.

Syria’s President Assad comes from the Alawite sect, a heterodox offshoot of Shia Islam.
The BBC’s Paul Wood, in Beirut, says the number of people killed in Tuesday’s attack makes it one of the worst in Shia southern Beirut since the war across the border in Syria began.
But more significantly, he says, it is the first attack on an Iranian target.

The Iranian ambassador in Beirut confirmed Mr Ansari’s death to Hezbollah’s al-Manar TV, saying it was not clear if he had been in the embassy itself or one of the residential buildings nearby.
Mr Ansari had only taken up his post a month ago.
Lebanese officials said the first suicide attacker was on a motorcycle, while the second was in a four-wheel drive vehicle.
