Football Scoop

By Tom Perry, Issam Abdallah and Timour Azhari BEIRUT (Reuters) – In the darkness of Beirut’s unlit streets, men wielding batons and torches are taking security into their own hands in an initiative they hope will keep neighbourhoods safe but critics see as a worrying echo of Lebanon’s troubled past.
