Lebanese people gather at the scene where two explosions have struck near the Iranian Embassy killing many, in Beirut, Lebanon, Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013. The blasts in south Beirut's neighborhood of Janah also caused extensive damage on the nearby buildings and the Iranian mission. The area is a stronghold of the militant Hezbollah group, which is a main ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad in the civil war next door. It's not clear if the blasts are related to Syria's civil war. (AP Photo/Bilal Hussein)
