In a tweet, the PM Khan expressed his sorrow and said that Pakistan stands with their Lebanese brethren in this difficult time.

“Deeply pained to hear of the massive explosions in Beirut with precious lives lost & thousand injured. We stand in solidarity with our Lebanese brethren in their difficult hour, sharing their sorrow & grief”, he tweeted

A massive explosion rocked the Lebanese capital of Beirut on Tuesday, killing at least 100 people and injuring over 4,000. The number of casualties is expected to rise. 

Though the cause of the explosion is being investigated, however, Lebanon’s prime minister, Hassan Diab, said the cause of the explosion was 2,700 tonnes of ammonium nitrate stored in a warehouse for six years.
