BEIRUT (Reuters) - Two explosions apparently targeting the Iranian embassy hit the capital Beirut on Tuesday, security sources said, damaging at least six buildings in the embassy compound.

One of the sources said seven people were killed.

He said the blasts were caused by two rockets fired on the area, in the southern part of the city, while another said a car bomb was the source of the explosions.
