A bride was posing for a wedding photo shoot in Beirut, Lebanon, yesterday when a massive explosion occurred in the city’s port. Wedding photographer Mahmoud Nakib managed to capture the blast’s shockwave on camera.
The blast, which leveled sections of the capital city, killed at least 100 people, injured at least 4,000, and left up to 300,000 homeless. Lebanese authorities are blaming the catastrophe on 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate stored at a warehouse since 2014.
If you’d like to help victims of the explosion, the Lebanon Red Cross is accepting donations online.
