Long queues at Beirut bakeries as Lebanon bread crisis continues


Long lines form in front of bakeries and supermarkets in the Lebanese capital Beirut, where people wait hours for a bag of subsidised Arabic bread -- in short supply as a years-long economic crisis depletes state coffers. Lebanon's parliament approved a $150 million World Bank loan to import wheat, as shortages of subsidised bread intensify in the cash-strapped country, according to local media. Lebanon imports 80 percent of its wheat from war-torn Ukraine, according to a representative of Lebanon's wheat importers. But wheat-exporting powerhouse Ukraine has struggled to sell and sow its crops since Russia's invasion in February, putting consumers in poorer countries at risk of poverty and even famine.
