Customers storm banks to get their money in lebanon

Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Customers storm banks to get their money in Lebanon” – below is their description.

Lebanese banks have been held up by depositors seeking access to their own money frozen in the banking system.

An armed man entered a branch of BLOM bank in Beirut’s Tariq al-Jdideh neighbourhood seeking his deposit, the bank told Reuters in a statement, adding that the situation was under control.

The country’s banks have locked most depositors out of their savings since an economic crisis took hold three years ago, leaving much of the population unable to pay for basics
