Lebanese police fired tear gas to attempt to disperse rock-throwing protesters on Sunday in Beirut during the second day of anti-government demonstrations, which also saw a fire break out near parliament.
The fire began at an entrance to Parliament Square as demonstrators tried to break into a cordoned-off area. They also broke into the housing and transport ministry offices.
The recent protests were triggered by the devastating explosion on Tuesday that resulted in at least 158 deaths and thousands of injuries. Two government ministers have since resigned amid both the fallout over the blast and months of economic crisis, saying the government had failed to reform.
