Protests follow Lebanon funeral

There have been clashes in the Lebanese capital of Beirut, following the funeral of security chief Wissam al-Hassan, who was killed by a car bomb on Friday.

A group of protesters calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Najib Mikat tried to storm government offices.

Opposition figures blame neighbouring Syria for Friday's attack, and many fear the conflict could spill over the border into Lebanon.
