VIDEO: Massive explosion in Beirut, Lebanon

The massive explosion that sent a shockwave through Beirut killed at least 100 people and leaving thousands more injured… appears to have been caused by the detonation of more than 27-hundred metric tons of ammonium nitrate, the same compound used in the Oklahoma City bombing.

Officials in Beirut say the explosives were seized from a cargo ship in 2014 and they were being stored in a warehouse at the dock.
Lebanon’s prime minister says it was left unsecured in a warehouse for six years.
The Lebanese government says those responsible will be held accountable.
