BEIRUT (AP) — A priest says an explosion has gone off outside a church in a Lebanese village near the Syrian border where several suicide bombers attacked earlier in the day.
Father Elian Nasrallah says at least one explosion, possibly more, went off near the Saint Elias church in the Qaa village Monday night. He told The Associated Press that the explosions were followed by gunfire.
Earlier Monday, four suicide bombers killed five people and wounded at least 15 in the mainly Christian village near the Syrian border.
A security official says at least two explosions took place while families of those killed in the earlier bombings were gathering to prepare for funerals.
Qaa mayor Bashir Matar told the local LBC station that there were more bombings after the morning attacks, including at least one outside the church. He said there were multiple injuries but no deaths.
