Double Suicide Attack on Lebanese Cafe Kills at Least Four

Saturday, 10 January 2015 01:44 PM EST

BEIRUT— A double suicide bomb attack on a cafe in the Lebanese city of Tripoli killed at least four people on Saturday, a senior security official said.

More than 20 more people were wounded in the attack in the predominantly Alawite neighbourhood of Jabal Mohsen, the Lebanese National News Agency reported.

The second suicide bomber struck after people had gathered following the first explosion, it said.

The target was a cafe on a street dividing Jabal Mohsen from the rest of the predominantly Sunni Muslim city.

The governor or northern Lebanon ordered a curfew until 7 a.m. in Jabal Mohsen and the army set up a security cordon around the cafe, the agency reported.

Tripoli has been repeatedly buffeted by violence linked to the civil war in neighbouring Syria.

The last major flareup in the city was in October, when at least 11 soldiers and 22 militants were killed in clashes between Sunni militants and the army.
