On Tuesday, Aug. 4, a large explosion killed at least 135 people and injured more than 4,000 others in the capital city of Beirut, Lebanon. The blast is believed to have been caused by large quantities of ammonium nitrate, used for fertilizer and explosives, stored unsafely in a warehouse at the city’s port.
