|The naked woman at the airport|
A woman stripped naked at Lebanon’s international airport, despite being a majority Muslim religious society, according to press reports.
The Ukrainian woman undressed on Saturday, at the Beirut International Airport before security forces rushed to cover her with a blanket.
The sight of the naked woman sitting on the floor at Rafik Hariri International Airport caused a stir and General Security members immediately rushed over to the European in order to cover her with a blanket.
A photo of the naked woman appeared on several local websites. There were conflicting reports about why the Ukrainian went naked.
A source at the airport said Sunday, that the Ukrainian woman protested the decision of General Security for her deportation because her residency papers had expired.
However, some said that the woman was protesting against the ban on smoking at the airport, which took effect earlier this year.
