One police officer has died and 728 people were injured in the clashes on Saturday in protests demanding responsibility for the explosions that devastated the port of Beirut last Tuesday.
The Lebanese capital awoke in tense calm this Sunday after another day of unrest, when protesters broke into several ministries and the army had to be deployed.
The “Judgment Day” march took place on Saturday, attended by thousands of Lebanese people to protest the widespread corruption in the Arab nation’s political class that they hold responsible for what happened.
“There is hatred and blood between us and our authorities. People want revenge,” said 35-year-old Najib Fará, who, according to the Naharnet news agency, demonstrated in downtown Beirut.
