Pet dana nakon razorne eksplozije u Bejrutu, očekuju se prosvjedi Libanonaca koji su bijesni na vlast zbog korupcije i nemara koje smatraju uzrokom ove nesreće.
Građani traže odgovore, ali i preuzimanje odgovornosti za tragediju koja je pogodila libanonsku metropolu.
Strahuje se da bi mirni prosvjedi mogli prerasti u nasilje.
Podsjetimo, u četvrtak je mala grupa građana izašla na ulice zbog eksplozije u kojoj je poginulo 135 osoba kako bi prosvjedovala protiv političkih elita, no sigurnosne službe su ih otjerale suzavcem.

Details: A massive explosion late afternoon Tuesday at the warehouse section of the port of Beirut, Lebanon, killed more 73 and injured nearly 4,000, flattening buildings, shattering glass, and spreading fire. There were two explosions. The first, and much smaller one, was at a warehouse storing fireworks. But that explosion triggered the massive explosion next door, in a sprawling warehouse which stored 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate, a volatile chemical which was downloaded from a commercial ship in 2014 and which was supposed to be stored at the site only temporarily (for comparison: Timothy McVeigh used 1.8 tons of ammonium nitrate to blow up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995). The number of dead and injured is likely to rise, as an untold number of people are still buried under collapsed buildings. Lebanese authorities say that many bodies may never be found because they were likely destroyed by the immense explosion or incinerated in the intense fires which follow.
