BEIRUT - Around 8,000 people protested in Beirut on Sunday against Lebanon's sectarian political system, chanting the same slogans as demonstrators who toppled presidents in Tunisia and Egypt.


"Bread, knowledge, freedom. And no to political sectarianism", one banner at the protest read.




"The people want the overthrow of the system," protesters chanted, echoing the calls which have swept through the Arab world in recent weeks.
