Dozens of protesters closed a major road Tuesday in Lebanon's capital, demonstrating against a nationwide lockdown aimed at fighting the spread of the coronavirus.
The protesters used garbage bins to close Beirut's corniche al-Mazraa avenue for a short period of time before the riot police reopened it.
Lebanon is experiencing its worst economic and financial crisis in its modern history and tens of thousands have lost their jobs over the past year.
The local currency lost 80% of its value bringing plunging more than half of the country's population into poverty.
The cash-strapped government struggled to provide assistance to the crisis-struck population.
