Lebanese Blame Syria for Blast

After a bomb exploded in a Christian neighborhood of Beirut Friday afternoon, many Lebanese are pointing fingers at neighboring Syria for targeting a high-profile security official who was a major foe of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The Syrian government issued a statement condemning the bombing, but some have said Syria has wanted to destablize Lebanon for harboring refugees. Protesters gathered at the bombing site later in the night to mourn the victims and express anger over the fallen official. On Saturday, the Lebanese prime minister offered to resign over the blast, but many worried the country would descend into chaos without him.
