LEBANON — A large explosion rocked Lebanon’s capital Beirut Tuesday afternoon. At least 50 people were killed and nearly 3,000 others were wounded. The blast hit at the city’s port.

The huge event caused widespread panic and extensive damage to the surrounding area.

Lebanon’s interior minister says initial information indicates “highly explosive material seized years ago” blew up, though the cause of explosion won’t be determined until an investigation is complete.

The Israeli Government denied any involvement and has approached the Lebanese government to offer humanitarian and medical assistance.
