Beirut mourns blast victims with grief and rage, one week on

A week after the Beirut explosion, people mourn the victims with a mix of grief and rage, as more evidence emerges that the government ignored warnings.

A service has been held in Beirut a week to the day after a huge explosion killed nearly 200 people and injured more than 6,000 others.

And it has emerged the president and prime minister of Lebanon were both warned as recently as last month that the ammonium nitrate stored in Beirut’s port posed a security risk.
