Lebanon has not yet been able to return to a stable condition after the Beirut blast six days ago.

On Tuesday (August 4), a catastrophic explosion rocked the Lebanese capital of Beirut, killing at least 160 people and wounding about 5,000 others.

Dozens of people are still missing, and at least 300,000 people have been displaced as a result of the colossal blast, which leveled the whole port and a large section of central Beirut and turned successive apartment blocks into masses of debris and twisted metal.
