Desperate lebanon residents holding-up banks in attempts to access their own money | the world

ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Desperate Lebanon residents holding-up banks in attempts to access their own money | The World” – below is their description.

Lebanon’s banks have shut indefinitely following a string of hold-ups.

But rather than being mastermind criminals, most of the would-be bank-robbers have been regular citizens just wanting to access their bank accounts.

Political scientist and senior fellow at the King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies, Joseph Kechichian, says the people behind the incidents are from all walks of life.
