Truth or rumors: Will US sanction Salameh for links with Hezbollah?


The U.S. treasury has accused Central Bank Governor Riad Salameh of having links with Hezbollah, American sources told al-Hadath news interactive channel.

"The U.S. treasury has revealed a link between Hezbollah's financiers and the Central Bank," the sources said, adding that Washington is "one step away" from imposing sanctions on Salameh.

But American diplomatic sources have called the reports "rumors" as they told al-Jadeed TV, on Thursday, that the U.S. won't give any importance to the "rumors spread by some people with the aim of fueling the economic crisis in Lebanon for personal interests."
