Lebanese army use helicopters to control port fire, military says

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanon’s army said its helicopters would be used to help extinguish a fire at Beirut port on Thursday.

Live television footage showed one helicopter flying to the area, with a water container slung underneath. The blaze erupted a little more than a month after a huge explosion devastated the port and surrounding area.
