Some alarm was noted in Lebanon over the weekend when photos shared on social media showed a river in the country’s east had turned crimson red.

Authorities said the likely cause of the water’s discoloration was red dye spilled into the river by a local place of business.

The environment ministry said it would “take the maximum action against anyone who appears in the investigation, causing this pollution or contributing to it.”
