Egypt's Foreign Ministry on Saturday said that two explosions that rocked the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli one day earlier had shown that Lebanon should stay out of the crisis in next-door Syria.

In a statement, ministry spokesman Badr Abdel-Ati underlined that all political currents "should work to bolster unity, stability and social peace in Lebanon to prevent infighting in the country."

He called on all Lebanese political powers "to unite and stand by state institutions and work together with President Michel Suleiman to resume national dialogue and form a government to protect Lebanon and the Lebanese people."

The Egyptian spokesman offered his condolences to the Lebanese government and people for the victims of yesterday's bombings.

Two powerful explosions rocked two mosques in Tripoli yesterday as worshippers finished performing Friday prayers.

No group has claimed responsibility for the twin blasts, which killed at least 45 people and injured around 500.
