Allegations of sexual harassment against Beirut's acting governor surfaced after a covertly filmed video implicating the official was published on YouTube.In the video released Thursday, former employee Hoda Sankari speaks to a camera, accusing Nassif Qaloush, who is also the governor of North Lebanon, of sexually harassing her. The video then shows a 10-minute conversation with Qaloush that Sankari secretly filmed on her phone. The two discuss why Sankari's contract as a laboratory technician in the municipality of Mina had not been renewed. The video was first posted on YouTube Thursday by Ghada Eid, editor-in-chief of the investigative website Al-Taharri.
