Beirut in Mourning after Massive Blast

A catastrophic explosion that rocked Beirut yesterday killed more than 100, injured thousands more, filled the streets with ambulances, and was felt as far away as Cyprus, the Middle East Eye reports.

The blast scene—a warehouse in the city’s port where ~2,750 tons of confiscated ammonium nitrate had been stored unsafely for 6 years—still smoldered this morning.

More than 300,000 people woke up homeless.

“It’s like a war zone. I’m speechless,” Beirut’s mayor, Jamal Itani, told Reuters while surveying the damage.
