Lebanon To Probe Beirut Blast For Foreign Interference

Lebanese president says no legal cover will be offered for those responsible for explosion leaving 154 dead, 5,000 injured.

The president of Lebanon on Friday said the causes of a massive explosion in the capital Beirut's port had yet to be determined, without ruling out the possibility of foreign interference.
Michel Aoun said in a press conference in the presidential palace that he asked French President Emmanuel Macron to provide photos of the blast via satellite.
He added that if such photos were not available with France, he would ask other countries, without naming them.
Aoun said the investigation into the blast would include port officers and that no legal cover would be offered to any person found to be responsible.
A fire at a warehouse at the Port of Beirut led to a huge blast on Tuesday leaving 154 dead and around 5,000 injuries and causing massive material damage in several neighborhoods of the capital.
The Lebanese government announced the formation of an investigation committee to probe the deadly incident within a period of five days.
The blast rocked Lebanon while the country is experiencing its worst economic crisis, including a dramatic drop in the value of the Lebanese pound against the US dollar.
