Lebanon: Deadly clashes erupt in Beirut amid blast probe protests - DW News.

Gunfire killed at least six people and wounded about 30 others Thursday in Beirut as tensions flared during a protest against the lead judge investigating last year's massive blast at Beirut's port.

The protest outside the Justice Palace was called for by the Shiite Hezbollah group and its supporters as a court on Thursday dismissed the latest legal complaint brought against Judge Tarek Bitar, allowing him to resume work. Protesters had called for his removal.

The gunfire began when people heading to the protest organized by the Shiite Hezbollah and Amal groups passed through the Christian neighborhood of Ain el-Remmaneh in Beirut.

Two explosions were heard as people ran for cover. Ambulance sirens were heard through the city and the Lebanese army deployed patrols to seek out the perpetrators.
