Beirut River Turns Red

People in Lebanon’s capital woke up to the following scene of the river that runs at the edge of the city:

Since we’re very close to lent, some people have gotten a new feel for religion and called this a miracle, à la Jesus turning water into wine.

Greenpeace, however, has decided to investigate the matter and has taken water samples from the water. Or it could be a consequence of snow melting, soil erosion, dust or any other natural consequence of the current weather.

Either way, I still have no clue why people call this a river.
