Lebanon PM links car bomb to crisis in Syria

BEIRUT (AP) — Lebanon's prime minister says the deadly car bombing in Beirut has links to the civil war in neighboring Syria.

Friday's blast killed the country's intelligence chief and seven other people. Prime Minister Najib Mikati said Saturday the blast is linked to the intelligence chief's recent case, in which he exposed an alleged plot by Syria to sow chaos in Lebanon.
