Our thoughts and prayers are with the bereaved families and the injured: PM Narendra Modi.” read the tweet of Narendra Modi.

Major General, Abbas Ibrahim, of Lebanon’s General security Directorate, said the massive blast that shook Beirut’s port area on Tuesday was caused by “confiscated “high explosive materials”. it would be naive to describe such as explosive as due to fireworks” Ibrahim told Lebanese TV.

About 2750 tonnes of Ammonium nitrate were stored in the Beirut port warehouse that exploded Tuesday, devastating large parts of the Lebanese capital, Prime minister Haasan Diab said. “It is unacceptable that a shipment of 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate has been present for six years in a warehouse, without taking preventive measures,” he said at a defence council meeting, a spokesman told a press conference. “It is unacceptable and we cannot remain silent on this issue” he added.

CNN report suggested that 78 people died and nearly 4,000 people injured due to the explosion.
