In Contrast With Trump, Defense Sec. Esper Says Most Suspect Accident in Beirut
Destroyed buildings are visible on Wednesday, a day after a massive explosion at the port in Beirut, Lebanon. As of Wednesday morning, more than 100 people were confirmed dead, with thousands injured or trapped by rubble. Officials said a waterfront warehouse storing explosive materials, reportedly 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate, was the cause of the blast. On Tuesday, President Trump said there were signs of an intentional attack. (Daniel Carde/Getty Images)
Earlier statements by Lebanese leaders suggested that the blast was likely caused by highly explosive material that had been stored at warehouses in the capital for years. Then, on Tuesday, President Trump raised the possibility of a deliberate attack. The Pentagon is still collecting information to help determine the cause of the blast. [Full Story]
