After months of negotiations, Argentina reached an accord with key creditor groups on Tuesday to revamp the debt, after tumbling into its ninth sovereign default in May.

The massive explosion and devastation triggered by thousands of tons of chemicals improperly stored in Beirut's port is the culmination of decades of corruption that has driven one of the Middle East's most spirited countries to ruin. The staggering destruction, with losses in the billions of dollars, will compound Lebanon's multiple humanitarian catastrophes. Lebanon's rulers, many of them warlords and militia holdovers from the days of the 1975-90 civil war, have proven to be extremely resilient.
