People in the Lebanese village of Qaa are grieving after two separate suicide bomb attacks hit on the same day. Catholic News Service reached Melkite Catholic Archbishop Elias Rahal over the phone:

"We pray, we pray, we pray for the dead, for the injured... We are here for the families and for their children."
The first attack on June 27 killed five people, not including the bombers. The second attack hit near St. Elias Melkite Catholic Church as people were preparing for funerals for those killed in the first attack. About 30 people were injured in both incidents.
