Agriculture Minister Akram Chehayeb said Wednesday it was unfortunate that work has been halted at the Burj Hammoud landfill, urging the town's people to withstand and make sacrifices for the dump to be built.Protesters complained that despite the government saying the landfill would be sanitary, trash was being dumped without being recycled.Many people who lived in villages surrounding the notorious Naameh landfill, southeast of Beirut, had left their homes during its 17 years of operation.On Wednesday, more Kataeb supporters headed to the landfill after receiving news that police were intending to remove a tent they had erected a day earlier at the site.
