BEIRUT: An Ethiopian domestic worker wounded in a double car bombing south of Beirut earlier this week died Friday, raising the death toll to 11.
A security source said Tadilish Dista died at Rafik Hariri hospital early Friday from wounds sustained in Wednesday's twin blasts near the Iranian Cultural Center in Bir Hasan.128 people were also wounded in the attack.
Lebanon has been hit by a wave of car bomb attacks linked to the Syrian crisis.
Meanwhile, state-run team from the Higher Relief Committee arrived at the scene of the explosion in Bir Hasan Friday to assess damage inflicted on shops and residential apartments so that the government would provide compensation.
Affected property owners and residents were urged to submit claims for compensation to the HRC.
Earlier Friday, several shop owners briefly blocked a road in Bir Hasan to protest strict security measures imposed in the vicinity of the nearby Hezbollah-run Al-Manar television station, claiming their businesses were suffering.
