Lebanese banking association condemns delay in forming new government: statement

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanon’s banking association condemned on Wednesday what it called a “great and irresponsible tardiness” in forming a new government, following a night of vandalism on Tuesday against banks.

In a statement the group said that banks were doing as much as they can “to preserve what is left of our national economy”, and that the delay in forming a new government had made them a target of violence.
