I am sure the issue will be settled somehow soon but it looks like beIN wishes to humiliate us some more before the World Cup ends.
beIN Sports has filed a lawsuit against the state-run Tele Liban for airing the World Cup games for free and without permission, TL announced on Saturday evening.
“beIN decided to sue the nation’s television channel TL over airing the World Cup matches,” sports analyst at the state’s network Ali Alawiyeh announced right before the Brazil-Chile game kicked off on Saturday evening.
Tele Liban started broadcasting its first 2014 World Cup match on June 16, although a deal reached between the government and beIN Sports’ sole agent in Lebanon did not involve granting TL the rights to air the tournament. [Naharnet]

Abdul Karim was one of the two General Security officers who intercepted the suicide bomber’s car going the wrong way yesterday. Abdul Karim stayed with the driver while the other GS officer went to inform the nearest army checkpoint. That’s when the blast took place and killed both the suicide bomber and Abdul Karim.
This man helped prevent a disaster because the car was headed towards a crowded cafe and could have killed tens if not hundreds. He’s one of many security officers who died trying to save lives in the past year.

I looked it up and it’s indeed there on Whatsapp for Android. I am pretty sure it wasn’t available before but I don’t know if they only added it recently as I rarely use flags while chatting.
Telecom Minister Boutros Harb announced few minutes ago that Lebanese will be able to watch the World Cup Games on Cable channels, and that the Telecom Ministry will cover the broadcasting costs that Sama is requesting.
Mabrouk and Go Germany!
It shouldn’t be so hard for the police to spot and stop this car. After all, aside from not having any plate number, he definitely didn’t pass the “Mecanique” if he ever went there.
