The entire government of Lebanon has resigned after a powerful Beirut port explosion ignited public uproar against the country’s leaders.

The resignation was announced by the country’s Prime Minister, Hassan Diab on Monday evening.

The blast which happened on August 4 at a port warehouse of more than 2,000 tonnes of ammonium nitrate killed at least 163 people, injured more than 6000 and destroyed parts of Beirut, making protesters take to the streets for two straight days demanding for the country leaders resignation.

Announcing the resignation of his government, the Prime Minister said he backed calls by the citizens for those responsible to be put on trial.

“Today we follow the will of the people in their demand to hold accountable those responsible for the disaster that has been in hiding for seven years, and their desire for real change,” Mr Diab said.

This follows after four ministers quit on Sunday, August 9, with many wanting to also resign.

The Prime Minister on Saturday, August 15 would request early parliamentary elections and Parliament will now have to decide on a new prime minister.
