LEBANON DIGS OUT AFTER BLIZZARDS CARPET COUNTRY WITH SNOW.

struggles to dig his car from a snowdrift left by harsh winter storms
January 7, 2002. Much of the country was paralysed by the winter blast,
with the main international highway buried under a metre of flakes and
schools across eastern Lebanon's Bekaa Valley closed as storms made
roads impassable. REUTERS/Mohamed azakir
