Tripoli Returns to the Streets After Protester is Killed by Military Gunfire

Hundreds of protesters returned to the streets of Tripoli to demand an increase in living conditions in the northern Lebanese city which is primarily Sunni Muslim, and far poorer than most parts of the country. Anger had mounted over a protester killed by live ammunition the day before, with a demonstration taking place at his funeral and protesters later torching the municipality building.
