A suffocating sand storm hit Lebanon Tuesday, leading to 130 cases of asphyxiation or shortness of breath in the northern and eastern parts of the country, according to the Lebanese Red Cross. 

Dust and fog enveloped the capital Beirut and other parts of Lebanon. Poor visibility led motorists to drive slowly.

 

A source at Beirut airport said the storm could delay flights but the impact is still uncertain.[DailyStar]
