As Protesters Killed in Beirut, What is Going On in Lebanon and Why is There a Fear of Civil War?

At least six people were killed by gunfire in Beirut on Thursday as protesters demanded the removal of the lead investigator into last year’s blast at the docks. The rally was organised by two Shia Muslim groups, Hezbollah and Amal.

Six people were shot dead and at least 12 are critically injured in hospital after heavy gunfire was reported in the Tayouneh district of Beirut on 14 October.

Lebanese television carried images of unidentified men carrying rifles and heavy weaponry.

The Lebanese Army said the gunfire had targeted the protesters as they passed through a road junction close to the interface between Christian and Shia Muslim neighbourhoods.
