Lebanese army outlaws military clothes for civilians
"Lately, citizens and party members have been wearing clothes similar to military fatigues," a military statement said on Thursday. "The current circumstances in the country require that we put an end to this phenomenon."

It said "all civilians are forbidden from wearing any kind" of military clothes, to prevent people from using them to carry out acts that breach security.

Lebanon has been without a president since November 23, when Emile Lahoud ended his term without an elected successor. There are fears the crisis could lead to unrest in a country still recovering from its 1975-1990 civil war.
