BEIRUT, Lebanon, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- A Lebanese village has entered the Guinness Book of Records for making the longest sandwich in the world, reports said Saturday.

The residents of the village of Kfar Katra in the region of Mount Lebanon, southeast of Beirut, made a giant sandwich from local bread measuring 718 meters long and 15 centimeters wide.

The sandwich was filled with 140 kilograms of locally produced white cheese, 21,000 olives, 280 kilograms of tomatoes and 280 kilograms of cucumbers.

It took 713 people to roll the giant sandwich which was completed five days ahead of an Italian sandwich that will measure 700 meters and would have been considered the longest in the world if it wasn't for the Lebanese sandwich.
