Beirut's historic landmarks had already survived 15 years of civil war, and many of them had their iconic stained glass restored by one artist.

Maya Husseini saw two decades of her work disappear in the aftermath of the massive blast at the port of Beirut which ravaged entire neighbourhoods of the city.

Now she is determined to restore it all over again.
