While the reason of the blasts is still unclear, Prime Minister Hassan Diab has blamed thousands of tonnes of ammonium nitrate left unsecured at a warehouse near the city's port. Following this, a two-week state of emergency has been recommended by the President. The explosions have caused massive devastation, leaving large parts of the city shattered.
