Beirut explosion: Protesters angered over blast demand justice

Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Beirut on Saturday, angered over the deadly explosions that left at least 158 people dead and thousands injured in what they’ve called negligence on the part of the Lebanon government.

More than 6,000 people were also injured, and dozens are still missing.

As Mike Drolet explains, international aid is being sent to the city, but several countries are ensuring the support is not being given to the government.

    Here's an opportunity for the WE brothers to put their considerable money where their big mouths are and do some actual charitable work for a change instead of spending their time getting rich off the backs of Canadian taxpayers.

    Israel is behind this because of their desire to make Greater Israel. Don't believe me? Israel is the only country in the world that has expanded in size by 600% in last 60 years. Ambitious much?

    My heart is breaking for these people. So much unnecessary pain and suffering. For what? The cost of negligence. Did I hear the government say it is going to find out who is responsible? Sounds like an alcoholic pledging to find out where all the grocery money went. The people's anger appears justified and I hope the good people of Lebanon get new and committed leaders who actually have their safety and welfare in mind.
