Lebanese anti-government protesters, center, crossed the first barrier of the barbed wires that block the road to the government building, as they throw stones and bottles against the on-going trash crisis and alleged government corruption, in Beirut, Lebanon, Saturday, Aug. 29, 2015. Some thousands of people staged the largest of the demonstrations that began last week over garbage piling up in the streets of Beirut, and the government’s failure to resolve the crisis has evolved into wider protests against a political class that has dominated Lebanon since the end of the country’s civil war in 1990.
