Lebanon: Bomb inquiry zeros in on...the Islamists.

Islamists of the Sunni persuasion, to be exact.

Individuals have been detained and are being questioned. Fatah al Islam cooperating with elements of al Qaeda? Why split hairs? Mohammedans.

It is important to note that no group has claimed responsibility. YET.

Ceremony for the 10 soldiers killed in the blast held.

Hundreds of people have gathered in a stadium in Tripoli to honor 10 soldiers who were killed in a roadside bombing in this northern Lebanese city.

The blast during Wednesday morning rush hour also left eight civilians dead and was Lebanon's worst bombing in more than three years. It cast a dark shadow on the country trying to put past crises behind it.
