LIVE: Lebanon marks the two-year anniversary of Beirut port explosion.

Lebanon on Thursday marks two years since the explosion at Beirut's port that killed more than 215 people, injured thousands and destroyed large parts of the capital.

Families of the victims plan to hold marches in Beirut on Thursday afternoon, as they continue their search for justice, with protests also expected in cities in the US, Europe and elsewhere.

The August 4 explosion occurred after a huge stock of ammonium nitrate, inexplicably left in storage at the port for years, caught fire.

So far, no senior officials have been held accountable over the blast and a judicial investigation has been stalled for eight months. There has been widespread political interference in the probe and two sitting MPs charged in connection with the investigation have refused to attend hearings.
