Lebanese PM: Those responsible for the Beirut disaster will pay
PM Hassan Diyab: Today, Lebanon is totally ruined. Those responsible for the disaster will pay. Dangerous materials have been stored at Beirut port since 2014. “I call urgently on all the nations who love Lebanon to stand by our side and help in our recovery.” President Michel Aoun: “It is unacceptable that 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate were stored in Beirut port for six years without any precautions.” Lebanon will find the party responsible, he said, and hand out the harshest possible penalties..
