Lebanese cleric holds prayer in gas station amid fuel shortages

A cleric performed Friday prayers in front of a gas station in the coastal town of Jiyeh south of Beirut, as the country continues grappling with suffocating fuel shortages.

Dozens of motorists, who were lining up to fill up their cars, listened to the cleric’s sermon 30km south of the capital.

The fuel shortages have yet to ease as the cash-strapped country struggles to pay importers.

Clashes between angry residents are an almost daily occurrence.
