Hundreds gathered on the streets of #Beirut to #protest the appointment of Mustapha Adib as Lebanon’s new prime minister. The demonstrators were met with tear gas and armored vehicles.
The clashes took place on the same day French President Emmanuel Macron made his second visit to the city in a month to check on reform progress.
Protesters voiced concerns about the appointment of Adib as the head of the nation’s government, claiming he was not radical enough to change the country’s political structure.
