Germany’s Maas announces 10 million euros in aid for Lebanon

Germany’s Foreign Minister Heiko Maas announced a 10-million-euro (11.8-million-dollar) emergency aid package for Lebanon on Sunday, after the deadly blast at Beirut’s port earlier this week.

“The people of Beirut need our help, and they need hope,” Maas told the German Bild am Sonntag newspaper.

On Tuesday, a huge explosion ripped through Beirut’s port, killing at least 158 people, wounding 6,000, displacing some 250,000 to 300,000 from their homes and inflicting massive destruction across the city.

“These kinds of figures are shocking. I am glad that I am able to today confirm another 10 million euros from the German government for emergency aid measures,” Maas said.
