    Background: BEIRUT, LEBANON/LARNACA, CYPRUS

    Life in the Lebanese capital of Beirut took on some semblance of normality again on September 2 following five days of heavy fighting. Forty-two Lebanese soldiers and more than 100 civilians were reported killed in the fighting which forced Beirut residents to stay indoors for most of the time. The residents crowded the first food shops to reopen and there were queues outside bakeries, where housewives complained of paying three of four times the normal price for bread. For those who stay in Beirut, such fighting and street battles have become away of life and some accept it philosophically. Those who do not wish to stay sometimes arrive in larnaca, Cyprus, on their way to new homes in Europe and the united States. On September 1 more than 200 Lebanese arrived in Cyprus by sea to await flights out of Larnaca Airport. Beirut Airport is closed because of the fighting.
