Sculpture rises from Beirut blast debris to mark one year anniversary

Description

Workers construct a 25-metre-tall steel sculpture dubbed "The Gesture" by Lebanese artist Nadim Karam made from debris from the August 4 blast at Beirut's port. The explosion that thundered through the city levelled entire neighbourhoods, killed more than 200 people, wounded 6,500 others and pummelled the lives of survivors. Beirut is still struggling following the deadly explosion, with the country facing an accelerating financial crisis branded by the World Bank as one of the worst in modern times.
