The BBC back in Bint Jbeil
In his report from Bint Jbeil yesterday ("Lebanon starts to rebuild") the BBC’s Nicholas Witchell was particularly keen to emphasise which part of town he was in:
This is Bint Jbeil. For centuries it’s been what we in Britain would describe as the local market town. This is the centre of that town today… In the centre of town street after street was devastated… the rebuilding of this central part of the town is unquestionably going to take years.Why might that be?
