Lebanese police have seized hundreds of DVD films from a Virgin store in Beirut.
Security services said they carried out the raids because the films "undermined religions, contravened good morals and Israeli boycott laws, or included texts inciting young people to commit suicide".

Allied POWs plan for several hundred of their number to escape from a German camp during World War II.
