Television cameras caught a truck dumping garbage down the side of a valley near the Metn village of Baabdat Monday morning in no appreciably orderly way.A contrite mayor of Baabdat, Nabil Salhab, admitted to The Daily Star that the truck dumping in the valley was operating in the service of his municipality.When barrels of toxic waste were discovered at Shnanir quarry in Kesrouan, the public learned that still unaccounted for were roughly 10,000 other barrels from a $22 million deal signed in 1987 by the Lebanese Forces to dispose Italy's toxins in Lebanon.Those laws have not led to any prosecutions since Shnanir, Sfeir said. He added that municipal officials, who have standing to sue in the Kefraya medical waste incident, are more likely to settle outside of court. Samrout said he already had a lawsuit against the company he thought was responsible for the disposal. He discovered from the contents that the trash had come from Rabieh, Mansourieh and Antelias.
