At least five people have been killed and 15 injured in a series of suicide bomb blasts in eastern Lebanon.

Four suicide bombers were involved in the attack in the village of Qaa near the border with Syria, Lebanon's state-run National News Agency said.

A Lebanese military official said one suicide attacker blew himself up in front of a home in the village.

Three other attackers followed, detonating their suicide vests one after the other as people gathered in the area.

Lebanon's Al-Manar news agency, which is owned by the militant group Hezbollah, blamed the so-called Islamic State (IS) for the attack.

Previous attacks in Lebanon have been claimed by IS.
