Part of Beirut Port's silos collapsed on Sunday afternoon and a large cloud of dust and smoke was seen in the area, a Reuters witness said.

Earlier this month, a fire had been burning slowly in the ruins of the port's grain silos, giving off an orange glow visible at night from nearby neighbourhoods.

On Aug. 4, 2020, a massive chemical explosion in Beirut Port killed more than 215 people.
