Lebanon explosion called attack by Trump

President Trump described explosions that occurred in Beirut on Tuesday and killed at least 78 people as an "attack," saying his military and national security advisers had indicated to him that it was likely a bomb.

"I met with some of our great generals, and they just seemed to feel that it was — this was not some kind of manufacturing explosion type of event," Trump said at a White House news conference. "According to them — they would know better than I would — but they seem to think it was an attack, it was a bomb of some kind."

Beirut was rocked by a massive explosion early Tuesday evening local time that has left 78 dead and at least 4,000 injured, according to The New York Times.

TVNL Comment: Lebanese authorities have ruled the explosion an accident caused by the long term storage of ammonium nitrate.
