Tear Gas, Water Cannons Fired at Lebanese Protesters.

Hundreds of Lebanese gathered outside Beirut's central government building, Saturday, January 25, to reject the newly formed Cabinet.

Protesters breached tight security around the building, removing a metal gate and barbed wire, and prompting security forces to respond with water cannons and tear gas.

The protesters say the new Cabinet formed this week represents a corrupt, long-serving political class they have been protesting against since October.
