The French President Emmanuel Macron has warned that Lebanon must not be allowed to slide into chaos, following the devastating explosion in the capital Beirut.

He was speaking at a virtual donor conference hosted with the United States. Officials say 220 people are now known to have died, with more than 7,000 injured in the explosion at Beirut’s main port.

There have been more clashes with police in the city during anti-government protests.

  1. He wants you to stay calm because he knows the anti-“globalists” who say they’re with “the people” will go in and the country won’t fall to the “globalists” like Macron wants?

  2. Lebanon. You’re government has stolen and destroyed your lives. They have starved you, directly and indirectly murdered you, your friends, and family! It’s time to destroy your government.
