The number of victims in Beirut is growing, the damage is 10 to 15 billion

Rescue teams are still searching the ruins in the port of Beirut, almost three days after the devastating explosion that shook the capital of Lebanon.

The number of people killed in the horrific explosion in the port of Beirut has risen to 154, the state news agency NNA reports, citing the allegations of the Lebanese Minister of Health Hamad Hassan.


Hassan said that every fifth person was injured and that about 5,000 of them requested hospital treatment.


Reuters reports according to NNA that 120 people are currently in critical condition.


The explosion damaged a large silo and neighborhoods near the port, while ruins and broken glass covered several city blocks.


French and Russian rescue teams with dogs searched the port today, the day after Emanuel Macron's visit to the scene of the explosion.


Macron has promised help and demanded that Lebanese leaders, who have been in power for a long time, implement reforms.


The explosion was caused by the detonation of 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate, a chemical used for explosives and as a fertilizer, stored in the port since it was confiscated from a seized ship in 2013.


The government has launched an investigation and has come under fire because many Lebanese blame negligence and corruption for the disaster.


Search and rescue teams were sent from several countries to find survivors of the blast.


One of those found near the grain silo is 23-year-old Joe Akiki, a port worker who was listed as missing since the explosion.


Dozens of people are still on that list and about 300,000 people, more than 12 percent of the population of Beirut, cannot return to their apartments because doors and windows all over the city were broken in the explosion, and normal life is currently not possible in many buildings.


The damage is estimated at 10 to 15 billion dollars.
