Twin car bombs exploded outside mosques in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli, killing at least 29 people, wounding over 350 and wreaking major destruction in the country's second largest city. The blasts outside two Sunni mosques in Tripoli killed more than two dozen people and wounded hundreds, in what appeared to be a major escalation of violence. President Barack Obama said reports of a possible chemical weapons attack in Syria signal "a big event of grave concern" and said he has shortened the time frame for the U.S. to decide whether it will act to halt the spiraling bloodshed in the country. Hundreds of supporters of Mohammed Morsi took to the streets holding scattered rallies across the city in a test of whether the ousted Egyptian president's allies can keep up the pressure on the government despite the arrest of much of their senior leadership. less
