23 August 2013 Last updated at 19:44 BST

At least 42 people have been killed and more than 400 injured by two huge blasts in Lebanon's northern city of Tripoli, health officials say.

As Friday prayers ended, a blast hit the al-Taqwa mosque, usually attended by prominent Sunni cleric Sheikh Salem Rafii. He was unharmed.

A second blast five minutes later hit the al-Salam mosque.
