Rescuers in Lebanon recover more bodies days after blast

BEIRUT (AP) — Rescue teams were still searching the rubble of Beirut’s port for bodies yesterday, nearly three days after a massive explosion sent a wave of destruction through Lebanon’s capital, killing nearly 150 people and wounding thousands.

At least four more bodies have been recovered in the last 24 hours, and authorities say the death toll has risen to 149. The blast shredded a large grain silo, devastated neighbourhoods near the port and left several city blocks littered with glass and rubble.
