Two Greeks are among the thousands injured in yesterday’s blast in Beirut that shocked the world.

In the last hour, however, there are unconfirmed information that there is one dead person, presumably a woman, from the Greek community. This information has also reached the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but due to the situation in the Lebanese capital, it is not yet possible to confirm it.

According to the reports, the two injured are being treated in a hospital in the area, without further details being known about their state of health, as chaos still prevails in the city streets, with the perimeter of the explosion exceeding 15 kilometers.
