BEIRUT: The almost surreal case of an elderly woman beggar has taken social media by storm after news of her death while in posession of LBP 5,000,000 ($3,000) made rounds across different outlets.
The 52-year old woman, identified as Fatima Othman, was found dead Tuesday in a car in Bassta, Ouzai, with the Internal Security Forces (ISF) confirming to Annahar that she passed away of natural causes.
Othman was also in posession of a saving accounts worth a collective LBP 1.7 billion ($1,120,965.38), yet the authenticity of the documents has yet to be established.
The body of Othman has been returned to her family in Akkar where she has been buried.
