Long before the massive explosion that tore into Beirut in August, Lebanon had been following a path to self-destruction, marked by corrupt politicians who had allowed their citizens to sink into poverty and despair. In this special edition of Conflict Zone, we look back at four years of interviews with senior Lebanese politicians about the breakdown of their economy and their state institutions.
