A team of German engineers sent to Lebanon to help search for people trapped in the rubble after last week's explosion in Beirut is returning home, having failed to find any survivors.

Joerg Eger, who heads the THW agency's rapid rescue team in Lebanon, said Sunday that a number of specialist engineers would remain in Beirut until Thursday to assist in determining the safety of buildings affected by the blast.

TWF is a federal agency, but most of the people who go on missions are volunteers.
