Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah said on Tuesday that he believed the al-Qaida group that carried out last month's twin suicide bombings outside the Iranian embassy in Beirut was linked to Saudi Arabia's intelligence service.

The Abdullah Azzam Brigades, a Sunni Muslim group based in Lebanon, claimed responsibility for the attack, which killed at least 25 people and wounded 146.

"It is not a fictitious name, this group exists ... It has its leadership ... and I am convinced it is linked to the Saudi intelligence," he said.

"Saudi Arabia is the one who runs this kind of groups in several places in the world."
