A city known for its violence was hit again Friday morning, when a bombing in central Beirut killed five, including a former ambassador to the United States, Reuters reported.
The bombing occurred close to the studios of a Lebanese television network, Future TV. They were live on the air when the bombing can be heard from outside the building (at about the 8 second mark) and the anchor and commentator were noticeably rattled by it.
Commenters on Reddit translated what was said after the explosion. It wasn't immediately clear to the commentators if it was an explosion or a jet breaking the sound barrier.
