Clean-up underway after devastating Beirut explosion

Beirut got to work today (August 8th) cleaning up the debris of Tuesday's devastating explosion.

Footage showed teams of street-sweepers and local residents attempting to restore order while surrounded on all sides by destruction.

The explosion left at least 154 dead.

The blast was caused by a huge stock of ammonium nitrate that had been seized from a ship but never moved.
