Just a few weeks after Lebanon emerged from an ammonium nitrate explosion that ravaged its capital, a new batch of the explosive material was discovered next to the explosion site at the Port of Beirut.
3 Customs officials were called in for interrogation on Wednesday by Judicial Investigator Judge Fadi Sawan, reportedly in connection to this distressing discovery.
The Lebanese Army said in a statement last week that its engineers had been tasked with handling 4.35 tons of ammonium nitrate that had been discovered at Beirut Port.
