Until the end of Monday, searches were still on, especially in the foundations of the building, making access difficult due to debris.

“This is a very dangerous stage because of the concentration of debris and the risk of collapse,” Fire Chief Colonel Louis Carlos Guzman told state television.

The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a Saratoga hotel in Havana.

The five-star hotel has been closed for two years due to a corona virus infection and is set to reopen to the public on Tuesday. Its first four bases were damaged in the blast.

According to the Ministry of Tourism, 51 workers were inside the hotel at the time of the explosion.

Donation to the homeless

Design Store Claudestina posted an announcement on social media that it was accepting donations for the homeless, including “medicines, water, non-perishable food, packaging materials, clothing and bedding, towels.”

These civil society relief efforts began in January 2019 when a hurricane hit Havana. Until then it is the responsibility of the state.

Saratoga, a luxurious neoclassical building built in 1880, was renovated into a hotel in 1933 and reopened in 2005.

One of the most popular hotels in Havana, it hosted many personalities such as Beyonc மற்றும் and Jay Z, who celebrated their anniversary in 2013, along with Madonna and her daughter Lourdes and Mick Jagger, a famous member of the Rolling Stones.
