The port of Beirut is in ruins following a deadly explosion on 4 August. At least 100 people perished and thousands were wounded. Nearly 300,000 local residents were left homeless as huge parts of the Lebanese capital were completely destroyed by the blast and shockwaves.
Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diab has suggested that the devastating explosion occurred due to a huge stockpile of ammonium nitrate, a highly explosive chemical material, being left in a warehouse for six years without due safety measures.
