Lebanon remembers Rafiq Hariri
Five years after he was assassinated in a massive car bombing in 2005, supporters of Rafiq Hariri turned out in force to commemorate his death, carrying Lebanese flags and banners of the former prime minister.
Supporters wait for the slain prime minister's son, Saad Hariri, who now leads a unity government which includes the Syrian-backed former opposition.
Thousands of Hariri supporters flock to Martyrs' Square in central Beirut to mark the fifth anniversary of his death.
The crowd greets Rafiq Hariri's son and current Lebanese prime minister, Saad Hariri.
"Five years ago, you came to this very square to demand justice and freedom ... and we are not turning back," Prime Minister Saad Hariri told the crowd.
