IN PHOTOS: Dubai airport welcomes Beirut passengers with flowers

Passengers arriving from Beirut—where the recent port explosion that killed over hundreds and injured 4,000 people took place—were welcomed at Dubai International Airport on August 9 with flowers.

About 163 people who got off an Emirates flight were handed white roses by the operations team from Dubai Customs, with a message stating: “Rebuilding Lebanon is like rebuilding UAE”—a quote from UAE’s Founding President, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan

The initiative aimed to show the UAE’s solidarity with Lebanon and its people.
