Lebanon: A Country in Economic Crisis #infographic

Lebanon was a nation in turmoil on a variety of fronts, long before yesterday's devastating explosion in its capital city of Beirut. The explosion in the city's port area has claimed at least 100 lives, wounded thousands and caused widespread damage. President Michel Aoun said that the cause was 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate stored in a warehouse unsafely.

The timing could hardly get worse, with Lebanon already suffering an ongoing economic crisis, driving vast numbers of people into poverty and causing the biggest anti-government demonstrations in over a decade. As this chart reveals, forecasts from the IMF put the country's national debt at 162 per cent of GDP in 2020-the world's fourth largest.
