Funerals in Lebanon


The people of the Lebanese southern town of Majdal Selem accompanied the relatives of 17-year-old Malak Zahwi and Iman Hijazi on Friday as they said farewell to both of them after they were killed in a bomb that hit a southern suburb of Beirut. A car bomb killed at least five people in Hezbollah's southern Beirut stronghold on Thursday, destroying several cars and tearing facades off buildings, the latest in a series of deadly attacks on Shi'ite and Sunni targets in Lebanon.
