Lebanon: Army begins clearing roads after PM resignation

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY VIDEO) — The Lebanese army has cleared all major roads in the capital Beirut and other cities – as anti-government protests die down in the wake of Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s resignation on Tuesday.

The army had asked demonstrators earlier on Wednesday to clear all roadblocks to ensure that life returns to normal.

The country saw 12 days of protests over a weakening economy and corruption.

But so far there have been no protests on Wednesday.

Hariri has been asked to become caretaker prime minister until a new government can be put in place.
