At least five people have been killed after gunfire broke out in Beirut during a protest over the inquiry into last year’s port blast which killed more than 200 people.

Hezbollah and its allies had called for protests against the probe, saying they want Judge Tarek Bitar removed.

There was a large military presence on the streets of the Lebanese capital. Gunfire involving snipers, pistols, rifles and rocket-propelled grenades was seen – and the clashes continued even after the army arrived.
