Two foreign laborers died and several others were injured on Monday in an explosion at a quarry north of Beirut, media reports said.

The blast went off while the workers of the stone-crushing plant in Antelias were welding a diesel tank, they said.

The flames caused a second explosion at a nearby dynamite depot, the reports added.

The dead men are a Syrian and a Bangladeshi.

It was not clear if there were any Lebanese among the wounded workers.

Nasrallah has no reason to justify such accident by saying it is about a financial dispute. Such justification is used only when real hanky panky goes wrong or if it goes well.

Walla 7aram. If this were to happen in a civilized society there would be an enquiry, accountability and a series of regulations that would improved the safety of the workplace.
