In Lebanon, heavy gunfights are ongoing in some of the worst violence Beirut has seen in a decade. Earlier today, at least five people were killed and multiple others injured after gunfire erupted during a Hezbollah-led protest calling for the removal of Judge Tarek Bitar from the investigation into last August’s devastating blast at the Port of Beirut. The explosion killed more than 250 people. Critics accuse the judge of bias. It’s unclear who fired the shots at protesters.
