Live Correspondent: Power has been restored in Lebanon, officials say, after a 24-hour shutdown of the country's energy supply, reports BBC.

The energy ministry says the central bank has granted it $100m (£73m) of credit to buy fuel and keep its power stations operating.

The power grid shut down yesterday and officials said it was unlikely to restart for several days. For the past 18 months, Lebanon has endured an economic crisis and extreme fuel shortages.

That crisis has left half its population in poverty, crippled its currency, and sparked major demonstrations against politicians.

A lack of foreign currency has made it hard to pay overseas energy suppliers.
