12 June, 12:44

    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, JUNE 12 - An emergency meeting of the Lebanese government began Friday morning after another night of clashes between anti-government protestors and security forces in Beirut and other cities. The protests became violent again on Thursday night after the Lebanese lira dropped sharply again against the US dollar, to which it is pegged. Lebanon went into default in March and is experiencing its worst financial crisis in the past 30 years. Since October the country has also suffered lengthy, massive popular protests against high living costs and corruption.
