Viral video exposes Lebanese teacher beating students

A now viral video showing a school teacher caning his students in south Lebanon has sparked outrage among social media users.
The footage shows Moussa Daher, of the Zahrani branch of Makassed School, violently hitting young boys for “failing in his studies,” the Lebanese Daily Star website reported.

The students were forced to kneel on an office chair barefooted, as the teacher whipped them.

Lebanese Education Minister Elias Bou Saab was quoted by the Daily Star as saying that the teacher was banned from the profession as punishment.
