Beirut explosion: One year on survivors demand justice

International Editor

The people of Lebanon are marking the first anniversary of the devastating explosion in the port of Beirut which killed 218 people. Thousands more were injured, their homes destroyed. Now hyperinflation has taken hold, pushing half the population into poverty.

But there has been no justice. One year on, no top official has been held to account. We’ve been back to hear from some of the people I met in the immediate aftermath of the blast.
