Lebanon: thousands demonstrate against new Prime Minister Diab
Issued on: Modified:
Despite being in the job for a matter of days, there are already calls for Lebanon's new PM Hassan Diab to step down. As a former government minister who replaced outgoing Saad al-Hariri last week, Diab is still believed to a member of the "ruling elite" and partly responsible for Lebanon's worst financial crisis in decades. Thousands of pro-democracy protesters have turned out in the streets to call for his resignation.
