Hundreds of people marched from the center of Lebanon's capital to the port on Tuesday to commemorate the 171 people who perished in the massive explosion that rocked Beirut a week ago.

Participants carried candles as they made their way across the city to gather in front of the port, where they observed a moment of silence at the exact time of the Aug. 4 blast, which left more than 6,000 people injured and upwards of a quarter-million Beirutis homeless.
