After blast, Lebanon has enough grain for less than a month, minister says

first_imgThe explosion was the most powerful ever to rip through Beirut, leaving the port district a wreck of mangled masonry and disabling the main entry port for imports to feed a nation of more than 6 million people.The Beirut silo was capable of holding 120,000 tons of grain, said Ahmed Tamer, the director of the port of Tripoli, Lebanon’s second biggest city.The port in Tripoli, Lebanon’s second biggest port, is not equipped with grain storage facilities but wheat could be transferred to warehouses 2 km (about one mile) away, he said.At the time of the blast, the Beirut silo held no more than 15,000 tons of wheat as some millers had unloaded cargoes directly because of a delay in issuing letters of credit for payment, Ahmed Hattit, the head of the wheat importers union, told the local Al-Akhbar newspaper.Hattit said existing reserves of flour were sufficient to cover market needs for a month and a half and said there were four ships carrying cargoes totaling 28,000 tons of wheat that had not docked at the port yet.Lebanon is trying to immediately transfer four vessels carrying 25,000 tons of flour to the port in Tripoli, an economy ministry official told news channel LBCI.  Lebanon’s main grain silo at Beirut port was destroyed in a blast along with the wheat inside, leaving the nation with less than a month’s reserves of the grain although other vessels with supplies are on the way, the economy minister said on Wednesday.Raoul Nehme told Reuters a day after Tuesday’s devastating blast that Lebanon needed reserves for at least three months to ensure food security and was looking at other storage areas.He said reserves now stood at “a bit less than a month”.

first_imgUEFA Champions League Spurs’ dream is to reach Juventus’ level – Pochettino Harry West 02:52 2/13/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) MauricioPochettino - Cropped Getty Images UEFA Champions League Juventus v Tottenham Hotspur Juventus Tottenham Hotspur Tottenham face the Serie A giants in the Champions League and the Spurs boss says their history is incomparable to that of the Bianconeri Mauricio Pochettino says the statures of Tottenham and Juventus cannot be compared and has held up the Bianconeri as the level to which his club should aspire.Spurs and Juve do battle in the Champions League last 16, with the first leg to be held at Allianz Stadium on Tuesday.The Serie A giants have reached two of the past three finals, losing to Barcelona and Real Madrid, while the last of their two crowns came in 1996.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Spurs, meanwhile, are seeking only their second appearance in the last eight of the Champions League and although they have established themselves as a major Premier League force under Pochettino, the Argentine believes they are a long way behind the Old Lady when it comes to European pedigree.”I think Juventus are an exceptional team; we cannot make comparisons,” Pochettino said in Monday’s media conference.”In history they have won everything and reached the final twice in the last three seasons. We are a young team and we are still building our project.”Our dream is to get to the level of Juventus: we will see tomorrow if we can compete with them.”Juve will be without forward Paulo Dybala, who has lost his race to be fit for the opening leg following a hamstring injury, but Pochettino says counterpart Massimiliano Allegri has more than enough depth in his squad to cover for key absentees.Mauricio: “@juventusfc have plenty of experience and we need to reach their level with motivation, energy and the desire to compete.” #COYS pic.twitter.com/dTaak9HB4s— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) February 12, 2018″He [Dybala] is a great player and Juve are, of course, a bit different without him,” Pochettino said.”Like [Lionel] Messi, Cristiano [Ronaldo] and Neymar, Dybala has the capability to give the team different options. Of course, however, Juve have a lot of players who can replace him, [Federico] Bernardeschi for example.”After being drawn in a tough group alongside Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, Spurs were fancied by many to make an early exit but confounded expectations to progress as winners and Pochettino is unwilling to alter his approach in the knockout stages.Mauricio: “We are going to be brave, we are going to try to win. We need to play with freedom and clear ideas. It’s a game we must enjoy.” #COYS pic.twitter.com/t8JP8wcKdu— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) February 12, 2018″We cannot change our principles,” he said. “We will have to be aggressive, brave, respect our opponents. When I started playing I dreamed to be involved in games like this but now I think step by step.”When the draw for the group stage happened everybody thought Real Madrid first, and Dortmund second. We won the group stage instead and now we are here.”We have to show the desire to go to the next stage, play well, score goals, something which is so tough to do here. We must be competitive and keep going the way we are playing. Some of our recent performances were fantastic and we can certainly play again on that level tomorrow.”last_img read more
