Beirut resident Hoda Melki captured a touching video of her mother playing traditional Scottish folk song Auld Lang Syne on the piano amongst the debris of her damaged apartment the day after a major blast tore through the Lebanese capital.

Tuesday's explosion killed at least 135 people, injured 5,000, and pushed up to 250,000 out of their homes, after the shockwaves ripped out doors and shattered windows miles inland.

The death toll is expected to rise. Officials blamed the blast on a huge stockpile of highly explosive material stored for years in unsafe conditions at the port.

The explosion is the latest in a long line of tragedies for Beirut, a city still scarred by civil war that ended three decades ago and reeling from an economic meltdown and a surge in coronavirus infections.
