Beirut explosion: Drone footage shows port and its surroundings 1 year after deadly blast

Global News published this video item, entitled “Beirut explosion: Drone footage shows port and its surroundings 1 year after deadly blast” – below is their description.

Drone footage captured Beirut’s port and surrounding neighbourhoods on Monday, nearly a year after the Aug. 4 blast destroyed large swaths of the city after 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate inside a building at the port exploded.

In some of the most heavily impacted neighbourhoods, damage is still seen with windows blown out and shops remaining as rubble. Construction workers were also seen rebuilding some of the structures that were demolished in the immediate blast zone.

Lebanese are expected to mark the anniversary of one of the biggest non-nuclear explosions in history with protests and a moment of silence to be held at the exact time the blast took place.
