Lebanon’s top Christian cleric criticizes govt handling of Beirut port blast probe

(Reuters) – Lebanon’s top Christian cleric Bechara Boutros al-Rai criticised his country’s government on Thursday for failing to hold those responsible for the Beirut port blast on August 4, 2020 to justice.

In a mass held to commemorate the two-year anniversary of the explosion, Rai said the government “has no right” to block the domestic and international probes and that “God condemns those officials” stalling the investigation.
