Lebanon - - The Lebanese Consul in Turkey, Mazen Kabbara, warned in a statement that "The Lebanese are at risk of mafias that exploit them under the pretext of smuggling them into Europe, and then leave them stranded on Turkish soil or on Greek or Bulgarian borders after taking all their money."

He pointed out that "these abandoned Lebanese are imprisoned for lack of identity papers, and they are left in a difficult situation without money or prospects for the future."

Kabbara concluded: "We, at the Lebanese consulate, are helping these people, but assistance is limited to securing their return to their country. The increasing number of those deceived by such groups has become alarming, what calls for awareness through the media and vigilance by the authorities in Lebanon."
