In Beirut, a man lit himself on fire during an anti-government protest Saturday. The attempted self-immolation comes as Lebanon has been rocked by weeks of massive demonstrations against corruption and economic inequality that forced Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri to resign. But on Sunday, the leading candidate to replace him, businessman Samir Khatib, withdrew his candidacy, forcing the government to postpone scheduled talks aimed at naming a new prime minister.
