Hizbullah call for anti-gov't protests in Beirut
11/30/2006
Hizbullah-led opposition groups have called for mass protests to begin Friday in downtown Beirut with the aim of bringing down the Western-backed government. The call for peaceful street action came in a statement broadcast Thursday on the Hizbullah television stations and other opposition groups. It said the street action would begin on Friday at 15:00 in downtown Beirut, where the embattled government of Prime Minister Fuad Saniora has its headquarters. The call for protests came after weeks of political tension between pro-Syrian groups in the opposition, led by the Shi'ite Muslim Hizbullah and anti-Syrian factions supporting the government which has wide Western backing.
