Lebanese protesters enraged by official negligence blamed for Beirut’s enormous and deadly explosion vowed Sunday to rally again after a night of street clashes in which they stormed several ministries.
The calls for renewed protests came as French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris was to oversee a UN-backed virtual donors conference to raise aid for Lebanon, a country already mired in a painful economic crisis.
The protesters charge that Lebanon’s elite is fighting over the spoils of government, beholden to their personal and sectarian interests rather than the good of the nation.
