NOT POLITICAL

Beirut correspondent tells AM Show this morning.

David Enders joins The AM show to talk further about the devastating explosion that took place in Beirut. Enders claims he has never seen an explosion of this size from any kind of weaponry. 

Lebanese President Michel Aoun says it is "unacceptable" that 2750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate were kept in the warehouse, where the explosion occurred, for six years without safety measures.

There are currently 21 New Zealanders registered on SafeTravel as being in Lebanon and 10 registered as being in Beirut.
