Beirut Blast Interrupts Bride’s Photoshoot

Beirut Blast Interrupts Bride's Photoshoot

It was an ideal shot for a wedding video: the bride smiling in a quiet Beirut square. Mahmoud Nakib captured it, and was panning past the bride to take in her bouquet when the scene was shattered by a violent explosion ripping across the city. Nakib’s video shows the bouquet and the bride sent flying by the blast. Glass shatters and dust fills the air. The bewildered couple stand and look as alarms sound. Thankfully, the bride and groom are unharmed and able to walk away. Nakib said they took refuge at a house before dining at a small restaurant later that evening. The next day, Lebanon was still reeling, as the death toll from the massive explosion, at a portside warehouse, reached at least 100, with thousands wounded. Prime Minister Hassan Diab declared Wednesday, August 5, a national day of mourning, and appealed for international assistance. Credit: Mahmoud Nakib via Storyful
