Video and image shared on social media appeared to show the aftermath of two explosions

Explosions have rocked the Lebanese capital of Beirut.

The afternoon blasts shook several parts of the capital and thick smoke billowed from the city centre.

Residents reported windows being blown out and a false ceilings dropping.

The cause of the explosions is not yet known, or if they caused any injuries or fatalities.

Journalists from Lebanon’s Daily Star newspaper shared photographs of their destroyed office in the downtown area of the city, and others reported an explosion at the port area.

“All the buildings in my block are destroyed. Huge explosion in Beirut. Everyone covered in glass and blood,” wrote France 24 Correspondent Leila Molana-Allen.

Some on Twitter said they had heard the explosions, for which there is no confirmed cause, from miles away. They shared photographs of smoke billowing into the sky.

Another video taken from the sea showed a huge mushrooming smoke cloud as a shockwave ran through the water toward the camera.
