It is four months since a devastating explosion tore through the centre of the Lebanese capital Beirut, killing around 200 people and injuring many more.
An investigation that was promised within days has yet to set out the cause of the blast.
Dozens of arrests having been made, but nobody has been held responsible and none of the victims has been compensated.
The centre of the blast was at Beirut’s port, where the country’s only cruise ship, the Orient Queen, was docked.
