SHOCKING FOOTAGE: Video emerges of bomb attack inside Lebanese mosque

Footage has emerged from inside one of the two Lebanese mosques that were hit with bomb attacks this Friday, killing at least 27 people and signaling a sharp turn for the worst in the fragile Middle East country.

The explosions heightened concerns that Lebanon is entering a period of retaliatory Sunni versus Shiite attacks that target civilians. Just eight days before the recent round of bombings, a car bomb killed at least 21 people in the Shiite suburb of Beirut.

The footage shows a cleric in the middle of a sermon when the explosion is detonated. From the camera angle, it seems as though the bomb was positioned just in front of the podium.

Watch the footage below.
