Lebanon: Thousands partake in anti-Syria protest
Thousands of Lebanese students and activists on Friday demonstrated against Syria's hegemony in Lebanon. Reports said about 3,000 students from several universities gathered in Beirut downtown to shout "Syrians out!"
Despite the fact that the Lebanese government publicly warned on Thursday it would use force to prevent the protest, security forces allowed about 1,000 students from the Sagesse University to march to the downtown area of the national museum, Naharnet reported. (albawaba.com)
