Lebanon place names in Arabic only?

Has anyone been able to get level3 names (Local Administrative Unit is the placetype) for Lebanon in English or in any language other than Arabic? 

The JSON returned by the service says Lang="en-US" yet the place names are in Arabic.

    Some countries are better supported with language-specific name variants than others.  In Lebanon, we are missing some English name variants for administrative areas.  We do have French name variants for most Lebanon places.  Specifying a lang parameter in your request does not guarantee that we have a name variant in that language for the place you want.

    We are working to improve language support for GeoPlanet in future releases.  Look for our announcements at http://developer.yahoo.com.
