With travel warning lifted, Lebanon awaits return of Saudis

Tucked in a market square in downtown Beirut, the Paname Cafe caters to those with a taste for luxury.

A large modern art sculpture sits in the centre of the square, with benches around the sides where customers can relax in the sunshine.

But the cafe, and much of the upscale neighbourhood, which was resurrected under a multibillion-dollar project for high-end tourism and residences after the civil war in Lebanon ended, often feels deserted.
