Governor breaks down in tears while discussing Beirut blast


Beirut's governor broke down in tears during a TV interview at the scene of a massive explosion that rocked the city on Tuesday. He told how the blast flattened much of the city's port, damaging buildings across the capital. More than 100 people were killed and 4,000 injured, officials said. It is unclear what caused the blast, which appeared to have been triggered by a fire and struck with the force of an earthquake.
