FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Beirut explosion, one year on: ‘Collectively, we will come through’ • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.
The grim anniversary of the #Beirut port blast comes amid an unprecedented economic meltdown and a political stalemate that has kept Lebanon without a functioning government for a year. On a national day of mourning, relatives of the blast’s victims sat in rows of chairs at the port, cradling pictures of their slain relatives, as Lebanon’s Maronite patriarch conducted a mass shortly after 6:08pm local time – just when the explosion ripped through the city. FRANCE 24’s Nadia Massih tells us more.
