Beirut, Lebanon (Lebanese Republic)
TWO LEBANESE VILLAGERS PUSH THEIR CAR THROUGH SNOW.
Two Lebanese villagers push their car stuck in snow, as a truck carrying a Syrian tank stops on the road from Bahamdoun village to Damascus on Mount Lebanon January 5. The first major snow and rainfall of the season in Lebanon diminished fears of drought but newspapers and officials cautioned on Wednesday that levels were below average for this time of year. The town of Bahamdoun, 900 metres above sea level, is one of Lebanon's famous summer resorts.
