Insurance companies temporarily estimate losses from the explosion in the port of Beirut at $ 3 billion - about the same as from the explosions in the port of Tianjin in August 2015, Splash reported.
Although the explosion in Beirut on Tuesday last week was more powerful than at the Chinese port five years ago, more expensive cargo, including thousands of cars, was destroyed in Tianjin. The insurance amount claims following the accident in the port of Tianjin was until today the largest in the history of port insurance in peacetime, TASS reported.
According to the latest data, over 200 people have died in Lebanon, many are missing. The Beirut governor said Monday that many of the victims who had no ties to local residents, such as drivers or foreigners who worked at the port, could not be identified.
