A woman held staff hostage at a bank in Lebanon’s capital Beirut, demanding they let her withdraw frozen savings to pay for her sister’s medical bills.
She left the bank after reportedly being given $13,000 (£11,240). It is not clear if she has been arrested.
Later, a man held up a bank in Aley in a similar attempt to get his savings.
