Ireland's RTE have published an article on the damage inflicted on Beirut's Sursock Palace after last August's port explosion. The piece contains some rather melancholic photos, showing the true extent on the building and artworks. Also revealed is the even more shocking news that the owner of the Sursock Palace, Lady Yvonne Cochrane, 98, died from injuries sustained in the blast. Lady Cochrane's heirs are currently undertaking a six year restoration project which is expected to cost over €6.5m.
