Dozens wounded as Lebanon’s anti-gov’t protests turn violent

Dozens of people have been wounded after security forces used tear gas and water cannon to disperse crowds of anti-government protesters trying to reach Martyrs’ Square, the hub of a months-long protest movement in Lebanon calling for changes to the country’s political and financial systems.

Demonstrators set out from various spots in the capital Beirut in a march towards the city centre. But before they all converged near the road leading to Parliament, dozens of protesters flung rocks, traffic signs and tree branches at security forces guarding the institution.
