'It hurts': Beirut resident on blast aftermath

Wreckage smouldered at the site of a powerful explosion that shook the Lebanese capital, killing 78 people and injuring nearly 4,000, as the sun rose on Wednesday (August 5). Beirut resident Mohammed al-Hassan first feared an earthquake when the blast shattered the windows of his home in Dora, a district about four kilometers away from where a massive explosion took place on Tuesday. - REUTERS
