Beirut's catastrophic port explosion has demolished Rita Faraj Oghlo's house, left her family stranded and may cost her husband Adel his leg.
Like many Lebanese, they have endured multi-layered suffering since the Aug. 4 blast, which killed 179 people, injured 6,000 and triggered protests against an elite blamed for political turmoil and economic collapse.
The government has said it will hold those responsible for the explosion to account. But the family is more concerned with surviving than justice.
"Without my husband," said Rita, "I can't stand up."
