  • It's now been more than 24 hours since this explosion in Beirut's port

  • and volunteers like the ones behind me are still trying to clean up the streets.

  • Clean the glass and the debris out of this neighbourhood.

  • I'm about 500 meters away.

  • You can actually see the port there behind me.

  • That area is completely flattened

  • but even here, even 500 meters away, you can see 20 stories up

  • this building has been completely destroyed.

  • Now a lot of the volunteers I'm talking to came from all over Lebanon today

  • to help clean up the capital city

  • but they're also very angry at their government

  • Protesters have been in the streets here since October

  • and those protests were in some ways silenced by the COVID-19 pandemic

  • but what people are telling me today is that

  • as soon as the rubble is cleaned up from the streets of Beirut

  • they'll be back in the streets.

  • And I actually saw a group of protesters from the northern city of Tripoli

  • come along this road just about one hour ago.

  • And with the port destroyed

  • and the financial crisis that Lebanon has been suffering for months already

  • it seems difficult to know how they'll possibly manage to rebuild.

  • You know for example you can see all these shattered windows around me

  • Lebanon doesn't produce glass.

  • They're going to have to import that

  • and the currency here has lost almost 80 per cent of its value.

  • So everybody I'm speaking to today is extremely concerned about the future of the country.
