Beirut explosion - mushroom shaped blast rips through Lebanese capital

A massive explosion has killed at least ten people and left hundreds injured after the blast devastated part of Lebanon's capital Beirut.
Pictures show buildings destroyed, people walking wounded, and a sea of wreckage after the blast that could be heard some 125 miles away in Cyprus.
Lebanon's state news agency NNA and two security sources said the blast had occurred in the port area where there are warehouses housing explosives, reports Reuters.
Nearby buildings around the port have been leveled, windows and doors have been blown out, and fires burn as smoke plumes billow across Beirut.
The Government Palace - the home of Lebanon's PM Hassan Diab - was damaged in the blast, and his wife and daughter were injured in the explosion.

    Nine-ton, 20 foot rods, 1-foot thick, made of solid tungsten, traveling at 5,000 mph, can do things like that. No explosives, just very hard metal traveling very fast and hitting the ground with incredible force.. Nice craters, too.

      They were in a hurry, there is 12 Hospitals in Beirut, all of them are huge, 5 we're out, and 3 were badly damaged, they had to evacuate serious cases to outside the city+Covid19 ones......we saw on the TV blood flooding the ground...even in a film I never saw that.....people disfigurated, that became disabled etc....lost an arm or a leg, people dying live on TV, if someone oppened his head it was closed without anesthesy and moslty using staplers to save time....imagine suffering this without anesthesy😱.....due the hospitals that were out, people were healed in the parkings and the streets.....
