Bombing Damage in Southern Beirut

Some photos of the bombing damage I was able to see in southern Beirut. These images were all taken by David Enders. What is hard to convey by images like these is the shear scale of the bombing damage. To walk through this neighborhood where entire buildings in some cases have collapsed, to sit in a Hezbollah media office with all the windows blown out, to watch the people pick through the rubble ... no picture can provide you with the same feeling.

The above image shows one of the mainy signs placed on the bomb sites. It reads "Extremely Accurate Targets - The Devine Victory"

This last shot was of a refreshment stand set up for clean-up workers infront of a smashed building in southern Beirut.
