Thousands of Hizbullah-led protesters gathered in downtown Beirut on Sunday, demanding Prime Minister Fuad Saniora cede power to the opposition or step down. The demonstration could be a tipping point in Lebanon's burgeoning political crisis, ten days after a coalition of largely pro-Syrian opposition groups launched a series of rallies against Saniora's anti-Syrian, US-backed government. Lebanese combat troops and armed police sealed off major roads and added more layers of barbed wire around the prime minister's sprawling downtown complex, where he has been holed up with most of his ministers since Dec. 1.
