A burning car is seen at the entrance of a mosque which was attacked by a car bomb, in the northern city of Tripoli, Lebanon, Friday, Aug. 23, 2013. Lebanon's official news agency says dozens of people have been killed by twin explosions outside two Sunni mosques in a northern city. The explosions in Tripoli come amid rising tensions in Lebanon resulting from Syria's civil war, which has sharply polarized the country along sectarian lines and between supporters and opponents of the regime of President Bashar Assad. Tripoli has previously seen clashes between Sunnis and Alawites, a Shiite offshoot sect to which Assad belongs.(AP Photo)
