Clashes follow funeral of Lebanon car bomb victims

Help

Protesters have clashed with security forces in the Lebanese capital of Beirut after the funeral of security chief Wissam al-Hassan, who was killed by a car bomb on Friday.

Police fired tear gas and warning shots as a group of demonstrators tried to storm government offices.

The protesters and opposition politicians blame Syria for the attack, concerned that its allies within the government could cause the conflict to spread across the border.
