Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diab vowed that those responsible for the two huge blasts at Beirut Port on Tuesday will be held accountable.
In a televised address to the nation on Tuesday night, Diab offered condolences to Lebanese citizens over the explosions at a “dangerous” warehouse in Beirut Port area.
“I promise you that this catastrophe will not pass without accountability. … Those responsible will pay the price,” the premier said.
“Facts about this dangerous warehouse that has been there since 2014 will be announced and I will not preempt the investigations”.
He also called on ‘friendly countries’ to help after blasts.
Earlier before his address, Diab inspected the area of the blasts, as he announced Wednesday a national day of mourning.
