3 Killed in Lebanon as Militant Blows Himself Up

A suspected Islamist militant and two members of his family were killed in northern Lebanon on Saturday, after the man blew himself up during an army raid on his home, security and medical sources said.
It was the latest in a series of arrest raids across the country since two suicide bomb blasts claimed by Islamic State killed 44 people in a crowded commercial and residential area of Beirut last month, Reuters reported.
The raid took place in the town of Deir Ammar, northeast of the city of Tripoli. The explosion killed the wife and mother of the suspect, who was named as Mohammed Hamzeh, a security source said. At least 10 others were wounded, including four security personnel. A security source said Hamzeh was part of a group that had pledged allegiance to IS.
