Anti-Government Protests Rock Lebanon
Anti-government protests in Lebanon continued for a third day, as the Lebanese currency hit new lows and the chances or forming a new government continue to look bleak.
Protesters burned tires and closed roads as they flooded the streets on Thursday for a third day in a row.
“There is no way to get back our dignity other than the street,” a protester in Beirut told a local TV station, The Associated Press reported.
Lebanon’s Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri on Thursday blamed President Michel Aoun and Hizbullah for his failure to form a Cabinet.
The Lebanese government resigned in August after the explosion that decimated the Beirut port, caused damage throughout the city and killed some 200 people. Another 6,000 people were injured.
