Beirut businesses crowdfund to rebuild after blast

Lebanese entrepreneur Gizelle Hassoun stands amidst the rubble of the Madame Om pub, in the Lebanese capital's Gemmayze area on September 18, 2020. Nestled on the first floor of a blue villa in Beirut's lively Gemmayzeh district, Madame Om was once a popular night spot famed for its weekend parties and drag shows. But today the walls of the rented venue are cracked, part of its floor has caved in, and its balcony has been blown off. The pub is going to have to move. / AFP / ANWAR AMRO
