Pompeo Tours Lebanese Historical Preserved with US Funds

Saturday, 23 March 2019 03:38 PM EDT

BYBLOS, Lebanon (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his wife Susan spent much of the second and last day of their visit to Lebanon touring historical churches and a centuries-old citadel in this coastal city.

Saturday's tour in Byblos and a nearby village came a day after Pompeo blasted the militant Hezbollah group calling on the Lebanese people to stand up to the group's "criminality."

Pompeo began his day by visiting the site where a new U.S. embassy compound is being built then drove to the village of Behdaidat northeast of Beirut where he visited the 13th century Mar Tadros, or St. Theodore church.

He then visited the citadel of Byblos, a world heritage site before having lunch in a restaurant by the sea before departing the country shortly before sunset.
