There has been a powerful explosion near the business district in Lebanon’s capital Beirut.
Witnesses report seeing thick black smoke near the famous Phoenicia hotel and the Grand Serail – the headquarters of the Lebanon’s prime minister.
Images broadcast by a local TV channel showed cars on fire, bodies in the streets and ambulances helping the injured.
Beirut has been hit by several attacks since the summer, especially in strongholds of the Shiite movement Hezbollah.
