Draped in a frothy white wedding gown, this bride is like any other enjoying her big day.
And indeed it would be a typical marriage celebration, were it not for the broken glass and destroyed buildings that surround her and her cheering groom.
The pair were pictured with their wedding party in Beirut’s Rweiss neighbourhood, just three days after a car bomb killed at least 27 people.

The toll was the highest since a Beirut car bomb killed former prime minister Rafik al-Hariri and 22 others in February 2005.
Shia Hezbollah has blamed the bombing on radical Sunni Muslims.
