'It's Not Like It Was Lost In The Mail': Ammonium Nitrate In Beirut Port Intended For Mozambique

The catastrophic blast in Beirut led to the widespread devastation of Lebanon's capital city and has left at least 154 dead.

A fire at the port acted as a catalyst in the explosion of thousands of tons of ammonium nitrate.

According to CNN, a mining company in Mozambique says it was originally the intended recipient of the material.

But the ammonium nitrate never made it to Mozambique.

Instead, it was kept at Beirut's port for over six years before exploding earlier this week.
