More than 2000 Swedish tourists are now stranded in Lebanon after the country was cut-off by Israel. Sweden’s Foreign Ministry says there are also around 550 Swedes living in Lebanon, and is advising Swedes to avoid travel to the region.
There have been no reports so far of Swede’s being injured in the bombings. Our reporter Serena Möller is in Beirut - she spoke to Juan Navas earlier:
The Swedish Rescue Services have sent personnel to Cyprus. They are preparing to evaluate Swedes from Lebanon by boat.
