BEIRUT – Protesters across Lebanon blocked roads with burning tires on Friday for a second day of demonstrations, targeting the government over an economic crisis.
Thousands of people gathered outside the government headquarters in central Beirut on Thursday in Lebanon’s biggest protest in years.
This was the second wave of nationwide protests this month.
The government, which includes nearly all of Lebanon’s main parties, is struggling to implement long-delayed reforms to begin resolving the crisis.
Meanwhile, the National News Agency said two foreign workers got choked to death from a fire that spread to a building near the protests.(Reuters)
