Friends of Georges Abdallah stage sit-in outside French embassy

Friends of Lebanese detainee Georges Ibrahim Abdallah staged a sit-in outside the French embassy in Lebanon on Sunday and called for his release after 30 years have passed since he was detained in France.

In this regard, more than 350 supporters of Abdallah demonstrated outside the French jail where he is held.

Protesters described Abdallah as “the oldest political prisoner in Europe” and hoisted banners calling for his release.
