Protesters burned tires and set up roadblocks around Lebanon Saturday, October 20, in an angry response to the massive car bomb that killed senior intelligence official Wissam al Hassan, who was allegedly leading an investigation into a Lebanese politician accused of working with two Syrian officials to plan a string of attacks inside Lebanon. The blast killed at least eight people and wounded over 100. Saturday was declared a day of mourning in the country, though protesters set up roadblocks in Beirut, Sidon, Tripoli and the Bekaa Valley. Many Lebanese worry that the explosion is evidence of an escalation of Syria's war spilling over the borders and fear a return to the wave of political assassinations that rattled Lebanon between 2005 and 2008.
