The Government of Lebanon raises the death toll to 137 and more than 5,000 wounded

Beirut / The Lebanese government added two new deaths to the list of victims of the explosion on Tuesday in the port of Beirut and there are already 137 dead in the tragedy, which has caused more than 5,000 injuries of varying degrees.

The Lebanese Minister of Health, Hamad Hassan, informed the official radio Voice of Lebanon of the latest balance, while work continues to try to find survivors among the rubble of the tragedy

Hassan added that contacts are being maintained with Arab and European countries to ensure the arrival of medical aid to the country, and coordination work is being carried out to determine the needs and the installation of field hospitals.

On the other hand, the Lebanese official indicated that the order of the Council of Ministers on Wednesday to dictate house arrest against those responsible for the charge in the framework of the state of emergency in Beirut, which was also approved that day, is “proof” that they will ask for responsibilities.

Material damage between 3,000 and 5,000 million

On Tuesday an explosion in the port of Beirut after a fire that is suspected of being linked to a second detonation for reasons not yet determined caused the deflagration of 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate, according to the government.

The explosion generated a huge shock wave that affected thousands of homes and buildings destroying glass and walls, which has led a large part of the population of that part of the city to seek a roof in other places.

The authorities of the Beirut Governorate have reported that the damage could be around 3,000 or 5,000 million dollars and that there are still around a hundred missing.

The country has been in official mourning for three days since yesterday and the Lebanese capital is in a state of emergency under the supervision of the Armed Forces, in charge of maintaining order. (August 6, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
