In Lebanon, nationwide protests paralysed the country today as thousands of demonstrators blocked major roads in the second day of rallies against the government's handling of a severe economic crisis and the corrupted politicians. 

Lebanon is witnessing the biggest protest since 2015 and it could further destabilise the country whose economy is already on the verge of collapse and has one of the highest debt loads in the world. The protests, which drew people from all religious and political backgrounds, were largely peaceful, although violence erupted in several areas.
