US backs protests in Lebanon, says people 'suffered too much'


The US Embassy in Lebanon said the US backs protests in Lebanon, as the Lebanese people "have suffered too much and deserve to have leaders who listen to them and change course to respond to popular demands for transparency and accountability."


The US supports Lebanese people's right to protest against their leaders and encourages protesters to refrain from violence, the Embassy added.


This comes after the horrible Beirut blast that killed dozens and injured thousands of people in the Arab country.
