Hundreds of thousands in Beirut became homeless in seconds when a massive explosion rocked the capital of Lebanon on Tuesday, taking at least 154 lives and injuring 5,000.

The explosion wave went through Beirut historic quarters, located closer to the port, causing destruction as far as the outskirts of the city.

Some Beirut residents have shown journalists the interiors of their severely damaged homes and offices.
