With Lebanon in the midst of an energy crisis, the militant group Hezbollah brought Iranian fuel into the country via Syria on Thursday.The trucks sounded their horns as they entered the northeastern village of al-Ain.The shipment risks stirring the wrath of the U.S. which has imposed sanctions on Iran.But that was of little concern to these onlookers, who waved Hezbollah's flag and threw petals at the vehicles.One local businessman said he hoped more would come:"This convoy to break the siege and monopoly, this is the first convoy and hopefully another will follow, and the situation will improve and will ease the situation on poor because of the low prices."Washington has reiterated that U.S. sanctions on Iranian oil sales remain in place. But it has not said whether it is considering taking any action over the move by Hezbollah, which it designates a terrorist group..The action marks an expansion of Hezbollah's role in Lebanon, where critics have long accused the heavily armed group of acting as a state within the state.Lebanon's government said its permission was not sought to import the fuel.Politics aside, the situation in Lebanon is desperate. An economic crisis has seen the currency sink about 90% over the past two years pushing more than three quarters of the population into poverty.Fuel supplies have dried up because Lebanon does not have enough hard currency to cover even vital imports. Essential services, including some hospitals, have been forced to scale back or shut down.Hezbollah has said it will donate some of the oil to institutions in need including government hospitals and orphanages.

Britain will on Friday consider easing England's COVID-19 rules for international travel after the travel industry complained that a myriad of onerous rules and red tape were hobbling airlines, holiday and tourism companies. In a bid to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, Britain has a maze of different rules requiring expensive private testing and quarantine and a so-called traffic light system which ranks destinations as green, amber and red. "The COVID sub-committee of cabinet that decides these things will be considering that probably later today," Agriculture Secretary George Eustice told Sky News.

LONDON (Reuters) -British retail sales volumes unexpectedly fell last month in what is now their longest streak of declines since current records began, though sales volumes still remain above pre-pandemic levels, official data showed on Friday. Sales dropped 0.9% on the month in August versus economists' average forecasts in a Reuters poll for a rise of 0.5%, leading to their fourth consecutive monthly decline after previous months were revised lower, the Office for National Statistics said. August's drop appeared partly to reflect reduced supermarket sales as more people ate outside home following the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions, statisticians added.
