  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Lebanon’s farmers fear of produce going to waste after Saudi ban due to hidden drugs” – below is their description.

    Since the end of April, Lebanese farmers have been banned from exporting their produce to Saudi Arabia. That comes after Saudi authorities discovered more than 5 million amphetamine pills hidden inside Lebanese fruit, according to the kingdom. But as they wait for the ban to be lifted, many farmers fear of having an excess of produce unsuitable for selling, as FRANCE 24’s Beirut correspondent Zeina Antonios and Vedika Bahl report.
