Mideast Lebanon Trash

Lebanese paramedics carry away a Lebanese demonstrator during a protest against the ongoing trash crisis, in downtown Beirut, Lebanon, Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2015. Lebanon's health minister says the country is on the brink of a "major health disaster" unless an immediate solution is found for its mounting trash problem. Garbage has been collecting on the streets in Lebanon for the past month amid government paralysis and inability to agree on a solution after Beirut's main landfill was closed down.
