Beirut explosion: the volunteer clearing up the wreckage of her home city – video

In the days after the Beirut explosion, the Guardian followed yoga teacher Jana Saleh as she volunteered to help clear up.

She finds chaos, disorder and a lack of support from Lebanese authorities: ‘there is no government, no army … nothing’.

In the immediate aftermath, she searches through wreckage, helps out older people and clears a hospital smashed beyond repair.

More than 150 people died in the blast, around 5,000 were injured and at least 60 are still missing, according to the health ministry.
