'At least' 10 killed in Beirut explosions (VIDEOS)
Huge explosions in the Lebanese capital of Beirut have killed at least 10 people, local security and medical sources told Reuters. The blasts smashed buildings and turned the citys streets into a debris-strewn wasteland.
An explosion rang out at Beirut’s port shortly after 6pm local time on Tuesday, followed immediately by another, deafening blast. The explosions obliterated buildings at the port and shattered windows several kilometers away, sending a mushroom cloud towering up into the sky. Health Minister Hamad Hassan blamed the explosion on a fireworks accident.
As the dust settled, Hassan ordered all available hospitals to begin receiving the wounded. Local media reports claim that hundreds more were injured.
