Lebanese media carried images of people trapped under rubble, many bloodied, after the massive blasts, the cause of which was not immediately known.
The official National News Agency confirmed deaths in the blast, without citing a number.
The explosions "caused dozens of injuries," a security source said.
A huge cloud of black smoke was engulfing the entire port area, as helicopters flew to dump water on the burning buildings. ■
