Pictures from the protest on martyr’s square yesterday, which drew a few hundred people; nothing for Lebanon. “C’est comme une marriage” somebody dryly noted.
Chaos continued to spread across the country yesterday, with several roads blocked with burning tyres and some sniper fire killing three in the Alawite neighbourhood of Jabal Mohsen in Tripoli. Saad Hariri, the head of the Future movement, has called on all Lebanese to open the roads and attend the funeral of Wissam al-Hassan today, meaning it now also is an opportunity for March 14 to show its strength.
Stay tuned for news from this afternoon’s funeral and rally.
