Saad Hariri's supporters protest in LebanonAdd to Lightbox Download
Small protests broke out in various areas around Lebanon after consultations were held on Monday with member of parliament, Najib Mikati, appearing as the front runner to replace Saad Hariri. Mikati is the choice of the March 8 coalition, which includes the Lebanese resistance and political movement Hizballah. March 8 collapsed the Lebanese government over a week ago as the UN tribunal investigating the killing of former Prime Minsiter, Rafiq Hariri, Saad's father, gets set to release indictments which are expected to target members of Hizballah. In Beirut a small protest was held at the grave of Rafiq Hariri, and elsewhere tires were burned shutting down roads by Saad Hariri's supporters.///Around 100 supporters of former prime minister Saad Hariri gathered outside the grave of Rafiq Hariri, Saad's father, in downtown Beirut. Many chanted against Iran, a supporter of Hizballah and the March 8 movement.
