Ex-Lebanese PM questioned over how $11 billion was spent

Former Lebanese prime minister Fouad Siniora was questioned by a state prosecutor on Thursday over how $11 billion in state funds was spent while he was in power.


His office issued a statement saying the spending was entirely legal.


It was the first time a former prime minister in Lebanon had been summoned for such questioning, and it follows protests against a ruling elite that is widely accused of state corruption.
