Lebanese residents and protesters should take measures to protect themselves from smoke, health experts said on Twitter Friday, as debris piles, tires and overturned dumpsters continued to blaze and block major roads across the country.Najat Saliba, director of the Nature Conservation Center at the American University of Beirut and a specialist in atmospheric chemistry, said these precautions were insufficient to protect wearers from smoke inhalation. She recommended protesters wear N-95 or P-100 respirator masks, which can filter out fine smoke particles.The smoke from protesters' fires follows less than a week after wildfires burned down hectares of forest in Lebanon's worst blazes in decades.
