Lebanon Beirut port silos burn, at risk of collapse Nearly two years ago, an explosion at Beirut's main port killed more than 200 people and injured thousands of others. Meanwhile, large grain silos withstood the force of the blast and for years have stood as a reminder of the tragedy. But fires broke out at the silos this month due to the fermentation of the remaining grain along with rising summer temperatures. The structure is now at risk of collapse, threatening nearby structures and the ongoing blast investigation. Al-Monitor's Joe Snell reports.
