In Lebanon, almost 400 people were injured during running battles between anti-government protesters and security forces in Beirut.

More street rallies were expected later today as part of the protests that has demanded the ouster of the Lebanese political class, which the activists condemn as inept and corrupt.

Rescuers said, at least 377 people were injured -- both protesters and members of the security forces. Protesters had called for a week of anger as an economic crisis deepened while efforts remained deadlocked to form a new government to replace a leadership that stepped down under street pressure late last year.


Yesterday's clashes began after dozens of protesters, some concealing their faces with scarves, threw rocks, plant pots and other objects at anti-riot police guarding the road leading to parliament in downtown Beirut. Others tried to breach barbed-wire barricades to reach the legislature building or charged police lines using traffic signs as weapons. The security forces responded with water cannon and tear gas to disperse the crowds.
