An armed man who held a bank hostage for more than six hours in Beirut because he could not withdraw savings has been hailed a hero by the public.
Banks in Lebanon have put tight rules on how much money people can access, amid a deep economic crisis.
The suspect entered the bank with a rifle, poured petrol and demanded his money for hospital bills, AFP reported.
His actions captured public support - with cheering crowds gathering outside and chanting: "You are a hero."
The stand-off eventually ended peacefully with no injuries, after negotiators struck an agreement allowing the suspect to receive $35,000 (£29,000) of his savings upfront, LBC TV channel reported.
