Beirut's port area was left in ruins after a massive warehouse explosion on Tuesday sent a devastating blast wave across the Lebanese capital.

Facades of central Beirut buildings were ripped off, furniture was sucked into streets and roads were strewn with glass and debris.

The major clean-up began on Wednesday as death toll has so far risen to over 100.

Lebanese President Michel Aoun said some 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate used in fertilisers and bombs had been stored for six years at the port without safety measures.
