Lebanon might run out of bread in about 2.5 weeks as 85% of the country’s grain comes through Beirut’s devastated port, the head of the U.N. food agency said.

For the first time since last week’s horrific blast, two ships docked at Beirut’s port on Monday including one carrying grain.

World Food Programme Executive Director David Beasley told a virtual U.N. briefing that “at the devastated site, we found a footprint that we can operate on a temporary basis.”
