Beirut:

About 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate have been saved within the Beirut port warehouse that exploded Tuesday, devastating giant elements of the Lebanese capital, Prime Minister Hassan Diab stated.

“It’s unacceptable {that a} cargo of two,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate has been current for six years in a warehouse, with out taking preventive measures,” he stated at a defence council assembly, a spokesman informed a press convention.

“It’s unacceptable and we can not stay silent on this problem.”
