Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah Friday strongly denied claims that his powerful Shia movement had stored arms at the site of a cataclysmic explosion that ripped through the Lebanese capital.
"I categorically deny" such rumours, Nasrallah said in a televised speech three days after a blast at Beirut's port killed more than 150 people.
"We have nothing in the port: not an arms depot, nor a missile depot nor missiles nor rifles nor bombs nor bullets nor ammonium nitrate."
