Reuters TV film demonstrated little was left by the blast as a fire truck drenched down the as yet seething ground. A Syrian refugee person said a large portion of the population living at the camp had fled to Lebanon from the Raqqa range of Syria.

“Obviously it begun with a cooking stove. We are holding up to affirm that,” she said.
