Beirut Explosion, Caused by Fireworks ?

The official explanation for the Beirut explosion is that fireworks caused explosion of ammonium nitrate.

Beirut Explosion; Bomb Maker’s Delight? has been revised to express my skepticism of this explanation, based upon:

  • Lack of support in technical literature for fireworks as an initiator.
  • The requirements of an explanation acceptable to Lebanese politics.
