Lebanese Protest Hizbullah's Arms

(Daily Star-Lebanon) Mohammed Zaatari - Sheikh Ahmad Assir warned that the sit-in he and his supporters are holding on the highway in Sidon will continue until a solution to the issue of Hizbullah's arms is devised. "We will not return to our homes until a peaceful solution is found," he said. Around 150 protesters set up a tent and blocked the highway connecting Sidon to south Lebanon Thursday in continuation of a protest against non-state arms that began Wednesday. Hundreds of protesters blocked the northern and southern entrances to Sidon Wednesday evening by lying on the road. Assir told reporters, "All Lebanese fear war and strife but we can no longer live without dignity; the resistance party's [Hizbullah's] arms stole our dignity."
