(Washington Post) Liz Sly - Hizbullah's leader, Hasan Nasrallah, warned Friday not to hold the Shiite militia responsible for the massive blast at Beirut's port, as many Lebanese point to Hizbullah as a source that helped bring about the tragedy. Nasrallah told Hizbullah's Al-Manar TV, "The resistance, with its strength and patriotism, is greater and bigger and stronger than to be hit by those liars who want to push and provoke for civil war.

At least 120 people were in critical condition.
