Lebanon's General Directorate of General Security has censored a caricature of Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei that was published in the French weekly Courrier International .
The censor covered the caricature with a sticker before allowing the publication to enter Lebanon.
The move has sparked debate on social media, including criticism and questions as to whether the directorate is affiliated with the Shiite group Hezbollah, a close ally of Tehran. There were also questions as to whether such censorship would
apply to other leaders who are caricatured by the French newspaper.
