Beirut Governor Ziad Chebib told The Daily Star Tuesday that the slaughterhouse would be temporarily shut down for renovation works as of Wednesday morning.While the issues surrounding the Karantina slaughterhouse are not new, the topic has become even more potent over the last week following Health Minister Wael Abu Faour's campaign against restaurants selling contaminated meat.The Daily Star visited Beirut's largest slaughterhouse Monday evening during slaughtering hours to observe the conditions.Hasan reassured The Daily Star that there is nothing inhumane about the way the cows are being slaughtered."The lack of training that the staff had in basic animal handling principles ... resulted in animals being really brutally beaten," Elliot told The Daily Star.She emphasized that the main issue with the slaughterhouse is the lack of order.
