WASHINGTON: There is no more foreign money for a Lebanese leadership that enriches itself and spurns the popular will, a top US official said on Wednesday, saying Lebanon had hit “rock bottom” with its Aug. 4 port explosion and must now enact profound reforms.
Undersecretary of State David Hale made the comments a week after visiting Lebanon following the blast that killed more than 172 people, injured 6,000, left 300,000 homeless and destroyed swathes of Beirut, compounding a deep financial crisis.
