BEIRUT: The police Saturday asked citizens once again to refrain from firing shots in the air or fireworks in celebration during the World Cup final game this weekend.
In a statement, the Internal Security Forces urged Lebanese "not to fire shots or fireworks, sit on top of vehicles or stand inside them as they cheer for their football teams."
"Such incidents could lead to loss of lives, injuries, disturbance, fear and scuffles between residents in a neighborhood. These acts are also against the law."
Despite repeated warnings by police last week, Lebanese fired celebratory gunfire and fireworks after Brazil’s defeat in the semifinal.
