The blast killed at least 100 people and injured more than 4,000 others. The whole city was shaken by the explosion and a mushroom cloud could be seen spreading over the port area. President Michel Aoun said the blast was caused by 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate stored unsafely in a warehouse. Ammonium nitrate is used as a fertiliser in agriculture and as an explosive.

  1. Maybe 2020 is the worst year, but on't forget how much push it has given for positive things. We are realizing loopholes in systems, we are becoming more united as a world. ZWe should not underestimate this

  2. Investors from all over the world who may already have an interest in the area, don't think 'disaster'. They think 'prime investment'. And the land will be cheap now and ripe for development.

  3. Surely the death toll must be way higher, like in the thousands… I know the numbers will keep increasing but there must of been thousands of people in or around the port….

  4. I see people saying that Lebanon "lost its capital."… Open your eyes… It is still there. Only 5% of Beirut was destroyed. Also, all of these "news" outlets calling the blast "akin to an atomic bomb" should be ashamed of themselves for fanning the flames.

    All they want is war, otherwise they'd have no story.

  5. From Albania I pray for them So sad that made me cry innocent kids women mans died the already gone through wars hard time god help survives I pray for survivors

  10. PM Hassan Diab said 2,750 metric tons (2750000 kilograms) of ammonium nitrate blew up. Under the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards, facilities that store more than 900 kilograms of ammonium nitrate are subject to inspections.

  11. UAE paid ISRAELI OPERATION, this blast will benefit UAE tourism industry, UAE and Israel should be probe. Devastating middle east mean more investment in these two countries. Blast helped Netanyahu as well due to diverting their attention
