One year after Lebanon blast, children still in distress

The monster explosion at Beirut's port has "chattered children's sense of normalcy and robbed them of safety," says UNICEF regional director Ted Chaiban during a press conference in the al-Karantina neighbourhood. A year after, one in three families in Lebanon have children still showing signs of trauma, according to a UN survey. The August 4, 2020 explosion killed more than 200 people, wounded at least 6,500 others and damaged swathes of the capital.
