Two explosions near the Iranian embassy in Lebanon's capital have killed at least seven people.
The blasts Tuesday in southern Beirut caused extensive damage to buildings in the area, including the embassy compound.
Lebanese television broadcast images of a line of flaming and charred vehicles along with piles of debris in the street.
There were conflicting reports about the cause of the explosions, ranging from rockets to car bombs.
The site is located in a neighborhood that is a stronghold of the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah. The group has been helping to fight rebels in neighboring Syria, which is one of its main backers along with Iran.
