Beirut Clashes day III

Clashes resumed near Parliament for the third day in a row as the country waits for the resignation of Prime Minister Hassan Diab’s government. A couple of hundred protesters gathered near the concrete barriers leading to Parliament, with dozens trying to bring down the barriers while others hurled rocks and fireworks. The police responded by firing tear gas canisters at the protesters, temporarily dispersing them before they returned.
