Searchers in Beirut recover more bodies days after blast

BEIRUT (AP) — Rescue teams have pulled more bodies from the rubble of Beirut’s port, nearly three days after a massive explosion sent a wave of destruction through Lebanon’s capital. The blast has killed nearly 150 people and wounded thousands. Outside the wrecked port, women cried as they waited for news of missing relatives. Among the four bodies recovered in the last 24 hours was that of a 23-year-old port worker missing since Tuesday’s explosion. His body was found in the rubble near a grain silo that was shredded along with other buildings in the port. The explosion also devastated nearby residential neighborhoods, blowing out windows and wrecking facades for miles around.
