1 woman dies in Lebanon forest fires

1 woman has died and dozens of people have been injured in forest fires across Lebanon.

Areas near Beirut, and in the north are worst affected. Government negligence is being blamed.

Some fires are still raging, and Jordan, Cyprus and Italy have sent helicopters to try to douse the blazes. It is feared other areas could reignite.

5000 acres have already been destroyed.

So not only is Lebanon burning figuratively, it's burning literally, too.

A syrian with a sense of humour..

And I thought all syrians were a bunch of dumbasses.

But then again, let's not forget what happened a couple of months ago in SYRIA.

Now lets get this right.
Remember this happened in Syria.

AN ARMS DEPOT BLEW UP IN FLAMES DUE TO EXTREME HEAT.

Thats right, EXTREME HEAT...
