Lebanon: Carlos Ghosn’s house destroyed by explosions

The house of Carlos Ghosn, the former boss of Renault-Nissan, did not resist the explosions that occurred on August 4 in the port of Beirut, according to the statements of his wife, Carole Ghosn, to the Brazilian newspaper The State of S. Paulo .

Located 5 kilometers from the port, where the drama took place on Tuesday, the colonial-style pink villa had been shown by TVs around the world when Carlos Ghosn had granted an interview there the day after his incredible escape, in early December 2019, Japanese prisons.

The Beirut disaster was caused by the explosion of 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate, cargo seized from a suspicious boat 7 years ago. The Lebanese army had recommended moving the dangerous material as early as 2017 without any reaction from the port authorities (16 of whom were remanded in custody). There are at least 137 dead, 5,000 injured and 300,000 homeless.
