A Lebanese journalist died late Friday after falling from the balcony of his house in a northern suburb of Beirut, a security source said over the weekend, in an apparent case of suicide.

Nasri Akkawi, who was in his late 60s, fell from the balcony of his home in Boushrieh, the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said.

The source said Akkawi had been having financial difficulties ever since the newspaper he worked for, Al-Bayraq, shut down in 2011 and had been unable to find employment after leaving the local daily.

Shortly after the publisher's death, Al-Bayraq newspaper along with other publications closed down in August 2011.
