Australian victim of Beirut explosion identified as two-year-old Isaac Oehlers

Another officer said he died after falling into an elevator shaft in a building after being chased by protesters. "This authority must step down", Ramah said.

The majority of Lebanese say it is symptomatic of the corruption and negligence that plagues the government and state institutions. Some protesters entered the building and burned a few documents.

The responsibility for the 2,700 tonnes of confiscated ammonium nitrate that exploded in a factory on the port of Beirut lays in the corrupt hands of a self-serving government that the people have been fighting to overturn for decades.

As the protest got underway however, small groups of young men began throwing stones at security forces.

But they're also angry, they say, and they're joining Lebanese communities around the world in protesting the government of their home country from wherever they are.

Demonstrators chanted "the people want the fall of the regime", and held posters saying "Leave, you are all killers".

Beirut has received a stream of worldwide assistance since the blast. He added that 45 people are still missing.

In a show of anger, the president of the Christian opposition Kataeb party said its three legislators have made a decision to resign from Parliament over the disaster.

To this end, social media users have taken to educate their fellow countrymen about the extent of the damage caused by Tuesday's ammonium nitrate explosion in Beirut.

Legislator Marwan Hamadeh resigned earlier this week in protest after the blast occurred. Turkey's vice-president and the country's foreign minister met Aoun and said that Ankara was ready to help rebuild Beirut's port and evacuate some of the wounded to Turkey for treatment.

Aoun said on Friday an investigation would examine whether the blast was caused by a bomb or other external interference.

At the nearby port, global rescue teams searched the rubble as the chances of finding survivors slipped away.

Five hospitals in the area affected by Tuesday's blast are either not functioning or partially functioning, and early reports indicate that many health centres and primary care facilities are also damaged or out of action, it said.

President Donald Trump said yesterday that he would take part in an global conference call for donors organising aid for Lebanon after the giant explosion in Beirut. The couple had two adult children.

Lebanon is mired in its worst economic and financial crisis in decades making it hard for many people who had their properties damaged to fix them.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Stef Blok and Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Sigrid Kaag expressed their condolences to the family and paid tribute to Waltmans-Molier in a joint statement.

"We will be having a conference call on Sunday with President Macron, leaders of Lebanon, and leaders from various other parts of the world", he said.
