Lebanon: Industry Minister Wael Abu Faour has revoked the license of the Al Arz Cement plant project. It follows protests by local residents, according to the Daily Star newspaper. A report by environmental non-government organisation (NGO) Green Globe ranked the region as the 11th most polluted area in the country due to quarrying and crusher activity. The cement plant project was launched in 2017 by entrepreneur Pierre Fattoush.
