Evacuations continue in Lebanon
The United States prepared to ship about 5,000 Americans from Beirut Friday to nearly complete the evacuation of its citizens from Lebanon as the international exodus reached a peak.

A helicopter ride was not on this young American citizen's wishlist, as he demonstrated by crying while being carried to a United States Marine helicopter that was to evacuate him from a landing pad at the United States Embassy, north of Beirut.
