Lebanon explosions hit Iran's embassy in Beirut

At least 22 people are reported killed in explosions which hit the Iranian embassy in south Beirut.

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 attack brings Lebanon closer to the conflict in Syria, as Carine Torbey reports from Beirut.
