Protests in Lebanon have resumed as a result of the continued economic crisis and the failure of the country's leaders to form a government. These new round of protests are seeing increasing levels of violence between the demonstrators and the police.
Protests in Lebanon renewed following the failure to form a new government and increased restrictions by banks on withdrawals. Protesters, who clashed with the police around the country's Central Bank, say the politicians are not listening to them.
Volunteers establish the "Les plus Beaux Villages du Liban" an initiative formed to preserve Lebanon's rural heritage. They began with the village of Hardine, Lebanon which was founded in 1250BC, and boasts archaeological sites, including a Roman temple and 30 monasteries and caves.
