BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:15 P.M.) – The historical city of Soor (var. Tyre) is witnessing a massive uproar in its streets, as demonstrators protest the Lebanese government and politicians.

On Saturday, the protests would turn violent as demonstrators were confronted by supporters of Harakat Amal, a Lebanese political party led by the veteran politician and Speaker of Parliament Nabih Berri.

The clashes reportedly broke out after videos posted on social media Friday showed demonstrators shouting accusations that Nabih Berri was a thief.
