France: Lebanon is a humanitarian disaster
Lebanon-Israel-France, Politics, 8/3/2006
The humanitarian situation in Lebanon is "more and more worrying, I would even say disastrous," French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy said today.
"We have passed the figure of one million displaced people, and of these half are children," he said.
"We have passed the figure of 800 dead and sadly of these more than a third are children. In the south of the country only the old people are left at home.
"In the Bekaa valley, since yesterday's military operations, a quarter of the population has left. Food is increasingly expensive in Beirut. Medicine for children is beginning to run out," the minister said.
