 Beirut bombings: British nationals among those trapped, Boris Johnson

LONDON (PA) - The British prime minister has confirmed that the British were among those trapped in a bomb blast in the Lebanese capital, Beirut. He said the British government was ready to provide them with all possible support. Foreign Secretary Dominic Robb said the UK stood by Lebanon in this situation and expressed solidarity. In a tweet, Boris Johnson wrote that the videos and pictures coming from Beirut at night are shocking. All my sympathies and prayers are with the people who have been affected by this horrific incident. He said the UK was ready to provide all possible assistance to those trapped in the horrific incident, including British nationals. A Foreign Office spokesman said all staff at the embassy in Beirut had been counted. Some of them have sustained non-fatal injuries and medical aid is being provided where necessary. Videos of dark clouds rising over the Middle Eastern city of Beirut on Tuesday evening were widely shared on social media. Authorities say the blasts killed at least 100 people and injured 3,000, with bodies buried under rubble. Although the immediate cause of the blast was not immediately clear, there are speculations that the explosions took place in storage of hazardous chemicals, although US President Donald Trump said US military officials felt the bombing was an attack. Can Lebanese General Security Chief Abbas Ibrahim said the blasts were caused by highly explosive material, which had been seized from the ship some time ago and stored at the port. The local television channel LBC reported that the material was sodium nitrate. Eyewitnesses say they saw strange orange clouds rise after the blast. An explosion of toxic nitrogen dioxide gas with nitrate raises orange clouds. Mr Trump said US military generals had told him they felt the bombings were the result of a "terrible attack" that could have been a bombing. He was speaking to reporters in Washington. "All my sympathies and thoughts are with the people affected by the devastating bombing in Beirut," Dominic Robb said in a tweet. The UK stands in solidarity with the people of Lebanon and stands ready to help all victims, including British citizens. Labor leader Sir Care Starmer wrote in a tweet that images of the Beirut bombings were "worrying". Our views are with the affected people, the emergency services and the people of Lebanon. Former Chancellor Sajid Javed tweeted that his thoughts and prayers are with the people of Lebanon. London Mayor Sadiq Khan said that the city of London stood by him on the occasion of the really scary pictures coming out of Beirut. Acting Liberal Democrat leader Sir Ed Davy wrote in a tweet that the scenes from a city that is already in turmoil are painful and tragic.
