Lebanon's economic crisis felt in city of Tripoli

World Bank has warned poverty will rise by a further 50 percent if financial crisis continues.

    Lebanon's government has approved a rescue plan to pull the country out of its worst economic crisis in decades, which has driven months of mass protests.

    The plan includes restructuring the public sector and seeking help from foreign donors.

    But it is unlikely to satisfy people living in Lebanon's poorest city, who remain sceptical the government can help lift them out of poverty.
