Lebanese government to sue producers of TV drama Homeland because 'it portrays Beirut as full of terrorists' (on the day car bomb in city kills eight)

  • Lebanese Tourism Minister Fadi Abboud is consulting lawyers about legal action and is demanding an apology from producers
  • He said the latest episode wrongly depicted the city as strong-hold for terrorists and a place where foreigners are attacked
  • Complaint arrives just as car bomb rocks city, leaving at least eight dead
