This article was amended on Saturday, February 23 2019

A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that the refugee settlement was dismantled as a result of the work of the joint committee between the Litani River Authority and the Industry Ministry. Rather, this committee is focused on cracking down on factories polluting the river and is not connected to the refugees’ eviction. The Daily Star regrets this error.



A version of this article appeared in the print edition of The Daily Star on February 19, 2019, on page 2.
