Calmness around Lebanon Cabinet after...
Beirut, Lebanon
By Video Cairo Sat
21 Oct 2012

Calmness prevailed around the Lebanese Cabinet headquarters on Sunday, October 21, after angry protestors attempted to break into the building demanding government resignation.

Security men dispersed the protestors using teargas shots.

The public rage was a reaction to the assassination of intelligence chief Wissam al-Hassan through a car bomb explosion, which killed seven others and injured over a hundred.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – A protesting man:
“There wasn’t a decision made to break into the Cabinet. On the contrary, the decision was to protect the Cabinet and its privacy. But we have a message for the Prime Minister Najib Mikati telling him that we do not want him as prime minister and that he protected the murderers and did not do anything to serve this country or to protect its people.”

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – A protesting woman:
“We’re participating in this sit-in because we want to oust the government of Hezbollah and Bashar al-Assad. We need to know what we are heading to in the future. We don’t feel secure because of Hezbollah’s weapons, which have become numerous enough to cause us to fear for our lives.”

The Cabinet building was surrounded by tight security cordon and barded wires.

Several were injured in the clashes but calmness eventually returned to the cabinet area, although protestors remained until the evening.

Security men and protestors were separated by security barriers in an atmosphere of cautious calmness.
