Trump Calls Beirut Explosion 'an Attack of Some Kind' | Newsmax.com

U.S. officials believe the massive explosion at Lebanon's main port in Beirut was an attack, a bomb of some kind, according to President Donald Trump.
Prime Minister Hassan Diab described the blast as a "major national disaster" and said the depot that was the reason for the blast had been there since 2014.
"I will not rest until we hold whoever is responsible accountable and punish them with the most severe punishment," he said. "It's unacceptable that 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate have been stored in a container in a depot for the past six years," he said during a meeting of the Higher Defense Council.

 Lebanon's President Michel Aoun said that 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate had been stored for six years at the port without safety measures and said it was "unacceptable." The Lebanese officials' statements did not address whether there was anything deliberate about the blast.

The explosion, which killed more than 70 people and injured many hundreds more, overwhelmed hospitals dealing with the injured and dying. The blast was so large it blew out windows across the capital and was even heard from Cyprus.
