Massive explosion in Beirut kills at least 100, injures 4,000

  • At least 100 people were killed and 4,000 wounded in a massive explosion that shook Beirut on Tuesday, state-run media reported, citing the Red Cross. 
  • It's still unclear what exactly caused the explosion, centered on the Lebanese capital's port. It was earlier blamed on a fire that broke out.
  • Lebanon's Prime Minister said an investigation would focus on an estimated 2,750 metric tons of the explosive ammonium nitrate, stored at a warehouse.
  • A CNN senior international correspondent said the blast felt like an earthquake, while one witness said she had never felt an explosion like it in the city.
