WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says U.S. military generals have told him that they think the massive explosion that rocked Beirut on Tuesday, killing more than 70 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.
