Lebanon: Suicide Bomber Blows Himself Up at Beirut Hotel

A suicide bomber blew himself up in his room at a Beirut hotel Wednesday as Lebanese security forces raided the premises, causing an explosion that sent flames and a dark cloud of black smoke billowing out of the third-floor windows, security officials said, according to The Associated Press (AP).

The blast toward the end of evening rush-hour took place inside the Duroy Hotel in Beirut's Raouche district, a posh neighborhood of apartment towers and upscale hotels perched on cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
