At least two people were killed and several injured late Friday after an explosion in Beirut’s Tariq al-Jadideh, the Lebanese Red Cross said.

“Two bodies and a number of injured were transferred to the Maqassed Hospital after a fuel oil storage container exploded,” Red Cross Secretary-General George Kettaneh told the state-run National News Agency.

Videos on social media showed flames ripping through a small alley in what has been said to be Tariq al-Jadideh.
