Beirut explosion a month on: How life has changed for survivors


Beirut residents who were caught up in the ammonium nitrate explosion share their stories.

Muayad Moussa al-Qattan, a Syrian refugee, had his house destroyed and said he and his family would have "died of hunger" if it hadn’t been for civil organisations feeding them.

Bachir Ramadan, a musician and office worker, remembers being knocked back by the force of the blast and feeling his face burning.

Dr Eliane Ayoub, an anaesthesiologist, works in a nearby hospital that treated 700 injured people in just two hours.
