The Heat: Lebanon crisis

The Heat

Lebanon has been in crisis mode for years, but it was only after a deadly blast ripped through a Beirut port earlier this month, killing hundreds that the world finally took notice.

Now as the dust settles, the country is left with a political vacuum, a shattered economy and a health crisis.

As shock turns to anger, many are left wondering if the tragedy will bring about any real and lasting change to Lebanon.

  • Sara El-Yafi is a public policy consultant and political activist.
