In Pictures: Lebanon’s capital left strewn with damage after sea port blast
Lebanon Explosion

Beirut looked like a war zone on Wednesday the day after a blast at the Lebanese capital’s sea port caused more than 100 deaths and thousands of injuries.

Hospitals, which themselves sustained damage and were already dealing with Covid-19, were inundated with patients.

Buildings were flattened and vehicles wrecked after the explosion which caused damage that will need considerable reconstruction efforts.
