Massive Explosion in Beirut

Apparently at least 67 people are dead and more than 3,000 are injured, according to Bloomberg:

They’re saying it was a fireworks factory, I guess?

Didn’t realize fireworks could make that big of an explosion. I doubt anyone believes the official version of events.

Via Twitter:


I don’t know a thing about Lebanese politics so I don’t know what the Kataeb Party is, and I won’t pretend I do by running a quick Google search and then proclaiming myself an Expert On Lebanese Politics.

But given that a political figure was killed in the explosion, it doesn’t seem too outlandish to assume that had something to do with this.
