Videos obtained by RT show areas around Beirut’s port reduced to rubble and ruins after explosions near the city’s docks destroyed nearby buildings and blew out windows more than 10 kilometers away.
Free-lance journalist Owen Holdaway sent videos from Beirut Thursday evening showing the aftermath of the blasts. “A large part of the area has been completely devastated,” Holdaway said in a video shot near downtown. “I’ve seen injured come from all over the sides. The main hospital up the road has taken a significant amount of injured. The buildings and the infrastructure in the whole area has been completely devastated. Shops around here have been completely destroyed.”
