On Tuesday evening, a large blast in the port of Beirut, capital of Lebanon, killed at least 70 people and injured over 4,000 others. While investigations are still ongoing, many are blaming highly explosive materials contained in a warehouse.
President Michel Aoun declared a two-week state of emergency in the capital and called for military authorities to aid in the response. He also announced that he would release 100 billion Lebanese pounds (US$66.3 million) from the year’s budget for emergency relief.
Here is the explosion in seven videos.
