“A tragedy in Lebanon. Massive destruction in Beirut after an explosion of flammable substances. Dozens of dead, thousands of injured. Armageddon,” the Polish head of state said in a message on Twitter.

“I share the pain of the families of the victims,” he added.

A devastating explosion at port warehouses storing highly explosive material rocked Beirut on Tuesday, killing at least 100 and injuring nearly 4,000 in a toll that officials expected to rise, the Reuters news agency reported.
