Beirut blast caused by ‘bomb of some kind’, suggests Donald Trump

President Donald Trump says U.S. military generals have told him that they think the massive explosion that rocked Beirut, killing more than 100 people, was likely a bomb.

He told reporters at the White House that he had met with some generals and they do not think it was a manufacturing-type explosion. He says the generals seem to think it was an attack — “a bomb of some kind.”

The explosion flattened much of a port and damaged buildings across the capital, sending a giant mushroom cloud into the sky. More than 3,000 others were injured, with bodies buried in the rubble.
