Can somebody please change the title, as we can see Sophie arrived in Lebanon yesterday and visited a tented community in Bekaa Village this morning.

Security reasons were behind the no date.

I did wonder why Sophie’s diary was blank for this week. Now it all makes sense.

Great to see Sophie visiting this country and highlighting these controversial but extremely important issues.

Might this be another example of how the government uses a relatively junior member of the BRF to test the waters in an evolving geopolitical situation?
