Unrest grows in crisis-hit Lebanon amid coronavirus lockdown

The violence in Tripoli, Lebanon’s second largest city and the most impoverished, marked a serious escalation in protests that began on Monday and continued for three straight days into Wednesday night. Dozens of young men have been taking part in the nightly protests throwing rocks at security forces and in some cases torching vehicles. The violence has left a 30-year-old man dead and more than 220 people injured.last_img
