Bride who was swept away by blast returns to site

Israa Seblani, radiant in her long white gown and veil, was posing near the couple's wedding venue, Le Gray Hotel, when the explosion hit.

On Wednesday (August 5), crews were clearing glass in front of the hotel where Seblani and her husband, Ahmad Subeih, had planned to spend their first night as newlyweds.

Subeih said when they went to retrieve their belongings from the hotel, the scene was unbelievable.

Investigations blamed negligence for the massive warehouse explosion that sent a devastating blast wave across Beirut, leaving thousands injured.
