**UN: More Typhoon Survivors Need Food Aid in Philippines**
The United Nations says it has yet to reach nearly a quarter of those in need of emergency food aid, 11 days after Typhoon Haiyan devastated the central Philippines.
The World Food Program (WFP) said Tuesday it has so far reached 1.9 million people out of the estimated 2.5 million Filipinos in need of assistance.
WFP executive director Ertharin Cousin told reporters in Manila her agency is not overwhelmed, but faces several logistical challenges in reaching remote areas.
**Blasts Kill 7 Near Iranian Embassy in Lebanon**
Two explosions near the Iranian embassy in Lebanon's capital have killed at least seven people.
The blasts Tuesday in southern Beirut caused extensive damage to buildings in the area, including the embassy compound.
Lebanese television broadcast images of a line of flaming and charred vehicles along with piles of debris in the street.
There were conflicting reports about the cause of the explosions, ranging from rockets to car bombs.
The site is located in a neighborhood that is a stronghold of the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah. The group has been helping to fight rebels in neighboring Syria, which is one of its main backers along with Iran.
