Podcast on Lebanon with The National, 23 Jan 2020

In this episode of Beyond the Headlines, The National’s Willy Lowry reported from the tear gas-filled streets of Beirut. He spoke to young people angry at what they’ve called Mr Diab’s “one-colour” government.

Also on the show is Dr. Nasser Saidi (from 10:00 onwards), a former Lebanese economy minister and former vice governor of the central bank of Lebanon. He lays out plainly the scale of the crisis and his recommendations of what the new government should do.
