Protesters Storm Lebanon Assembly, Lawmakers Postpone Session

Intro

Protesters stormed the Lebanese parliament, this lead to the indefinite postponment of the session, that had been due to discuss controversial draft laws.

“The session has been postponed to a date to be determined later,” said parliament official Adnane Daher, reading a statement in front of television cameras, citing “exceptional conditions, in particular security conditions”.

Thousands of Lebanese had earlier on Sunday occupied streets in an unprecedented protest movement against the ruling elite.

The leaderless pan-sectarian movement has swept the Mediterranean country since October 17, prompting the resignation of Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s government.
