  • In Lebanon, Prime Minister Saad Hariri has announced his resignation after nearly two weeks of massive anti-government protests over political corruption and economic turmoil. His televised address came soon after violence broke out on the streets, when supporters of two Shia groups attacked a protest camp and a roadblock in Beirut.

    They set tents on fire and beat anti-government demonstrators. Some chanted in support of Hezbollah – a powerful force in the coalition government – and the Shia political party Amal. Riot police and troops responded with tear gas. Latest reports said, anti-government protesters were back on the streets and celebrating Mr Hariri’s announcement.
