Protests turn violent in Beirut, two ministers quit

Protesters in Beirut hurled rocks at security forces blocking a road near parliament in the second day of anti-government demonstrations on Sunday.

Riot police wearing body armor and carrying batons clashed with demonstrators as thousands converged on Parliament Square and nearby Martyrs’ Square, Reuters reported.

Two government ministers resigned amid the political fallout of the blast.

The protests were sparked due to the blast in Beirut on Tuesday which killed over 150 people and injured over 6,000.
