Lebanon's capital city Beirut is reeling today after an explosion estimated to be one fifth the size of the nuclear blast which devastated Hiroshima, ripped through the city’s port on the 4th August.

At least 100 people are thought to be dead, with more than 4,000 injured, while it has been reported by local media that up to 250,000 people have been made homeless and the blast may have caused 5 billion pounds of damage to the city.
