Lebanon under seige

Israel has blocked Lebanon's sea ports.

It has destroyed Beirut Airport.

And now it has put a hole in the Beirut-Damascus highway.

By land, sea and air, it's now almost impossible for Lebanese to escape the country - but Israel is continuing to air bomb the country. 60 are dead so far.

Israel has warned the Lebanese authorities to evacuate an entire suburb of Beirut where Hassan Nasrallah (the leader of Hizbollah) is thought to live. With the borders blocked, and authorities stretched to the limit, it might be very difficult for any of these poorest of Lebanese to escape.
