An apocalyptic explosion has destroyed large parts of downtown Beirut, killing at least 73 – including one Australian – and injuring more than 3700 on the eve of a sensitive political court verdict.

About 2750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate was stored in the Beirut port warehouse that exploded, Prime Minister Hassan Diab said.

“It is unacceptable that a shipment of 2750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate has been present for six years in a warehouse, without taking preventive measures,” he said at a defence council meeting, a spokesman told a press conference.
