Lebanon to participate in Paris climate talks

Lebanon’s Prime Minister Tammam Salam is travelling to Paris to join other heads of state in the opening session of the international climate summit, but it is widely expected the main theme of the gathering to be security amid an international rash of terror.

Lebanon and France have both recently suffered major bombing and shooting attacks in their capital cities, resultng in scores of fatalities

Forty-four people were killed in twin bombings in Beirut on November 12, one day before the terror attacks that rocked Paris, killing 130 and spurring Europe and the United States to new initiatives against the Islamist militia.

The Islamic State organization claimed both attacks, and the downing of a Russian commercial jet over Egypt earlier this month.
