Beirut Explosions, Tragedy Of Monumental Proportions – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has described the August 4 explosions that rocked Beirut, the capital city of Lebanon as tragedy of monumental proportions.

In a condolence message today, August 6, to his Lebanese counterpart, President Michel Aoun and the people of Lebanon, President Buhari prayed that God will rest the souls of the dead, comfort the grieving, and grant succour to the wounded and displaced.

Buhari, who extended the sympathy of government to the large community of Lebanese in Nigeria, pledged the solidarity and brotherhood of Nigeria to Lebanon at this period of travails.

The massive explosions, which left 137 dead, over 5,000 wounded, and more than 300, 000 displaced, were suspected to have been caused by tons of ammonium nitrate stored in a warehouse.
