Ghobeiri Moneychangers Dispute Erupts into Gunfire


A dispute in the Beirut southern suburb of Ghobeiri between moneychangers from the Dbouq, Rahhal and Miqdad families erupted into gunfire on Monday.

Heavy machinegun fire was heard in the area around 4:00 p.m., prompting the army to intervene and contain the situation after cordoning off the area and closing the Beirut airport-Ghobeiri highway.
