The Guardian: Beirut explosion: security forces confront protesters near parliament

Calls for inquiry mount as officials begin blame game over ammonium nitrate storage

Lebanese security forces have reportedly fired tear gas to disperse dozens of anti-government demonstrators angered by a huge and deadly explosion widely seen as the most shocking expression yet of their government’s incompetence.

The scuffles in central Beirut took place in a ravaged street leading to parliament, amid wreckage from Tuesday’s explosion still littering the area.

Protesters had sparked a blaze, vandalised stores and lobbed stones at security forces, according to the state-run National News Agency.
