Abdallah Malek from the Association of Young Sudanese in Lebanon revealed that over 1,000 Sudanese have signed at the Sudanese Embassy to be repatriated, out of at least 4,000 living in Lebanon.

On the other hand, Lebanese people have been demonstrating since last year after the currency plunged to record lows, causing food prices to skyrocket in a country where more than 45 percent of the population were already living below the poverty line.
