Lebanese Customs held its second auction of abandoned goods at Beirut Port in an effort to "raise money for the state," agency head Badri Daher said Sunday. The auction ran from around 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Fifty cars and motorbikes were sold, for a total profit of LL385 million ($255,000), Daher told The Daily Star.Earlier, Daher had told local news channel LBCI that the auction had been expected to raise up to LL700 million. Items become the property of Customs if they go unclaimed for three months at Beirut's airport or the country's land borders, or for six months at the port.
