A  50-year-old Emirati died on Sunday in a Beirut hotel due to his health condition, the UAE Embassy announced.
UAE Ambassador to Lebanon Hamad Saeed Al Shamsi said his mission is coordinating with the competent Lebanese authorities to airlift the body of Ahmed Ali Abdul Hamid Al Qari Al Awadi to the UAE.
The Embassy is also following up on the results of investigations being conducted by Lebanese medical authorities on the matter, he added, noting that a preliminary medical assessment indicated that the cause of death was a sudden heart attack.
UAE lifted its travel ban on Lebanon earlier this month. However, due to the protests sweeping the country, UAE has urged all of its citizens not to travel to Lebanon until further notice. It also urged all Emiratis in the country to contact the UAE embassy there to arrange their return.
