Fire erupts in building near Beirut's port, cause unclear

Fire in landmark building in central Beirut put out: report

Early Tuesday a fire broke out in Beirut's commercial district.

Part of one side of the building was smoldering as firefighters hosed it down, Reuters reported.

India's GDP expected to contract 9% in FY21: ADB
China's economy is expected to rebound by 7.7% in 2021, while India will also bounce back with 8% growth next year, the ADB says. Growth will rally to 6.8 per cent in 2021, in part because growth will be measured relative to a weak 2020.

Two fires at the port caused alarm and anger among residents last week.

Fires continue to erupt at nearby Beirut Port following the massive August 4 port explosion that killed more than 190 people and injured 6,500 more. Fire crews were dispatched on site and managed to put out the blaze before it could spread further.

Preliminary government findings said sparks from a power saw could have caused Thursday's blaze, echoing a theory that welding was also behind the August 4 explosion. The causes of those fires are unclear.

Hadid, who died of a heart attack at age 65, in 2016, previously worked on the famed Issam Fares Institute at the American University of Beirut.
