The Abdullah Azzam Brigades, an Al-Qaeda offshoot, vowed this week to carry on its leader's mission to attack Iran and Hezbollah, saying Majid al-Majid personally oversaw the November twin suicide bombings outside the Iranian Embassy in Beirut.The Lebanese Army apprehended Majid last month, but he later died while at a military hospital in Beirut.The party had already claimed responsibility for the Nov. 19 bombings at the Iranian Embassy, but Majid's precise role was previously unknown. Iranian Foreign Affairs Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said earlier this week while in Beirut that Tehran would soon send a delegation to Lebanon to investigate Majid's case.
