US: We haven't ruled out Beirut blast was an attack

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said on Wednesday that the US government has not totally ruled out that a deadly explosion in Beirut, Lebanon, was an attack but said it is still gathering intelligence on the blast the Lebanese government has said was caused by unsafe storage of dangerous chemicals.
"Hopefully it was just a tragic accident and not an act of terror, but we're still looking at all the intel on that," Meadows said in a CNN interview after being asked about President Donald Trump's Tuesday night comments that the explosion was likely a bomb.
