Protests day 27

Thousands of people gathered in Lebanon's squares Tuesday night on the 27th consecutive day of nationwide protests. Beirut's Riad al-Solh Square, Tripoli's Al-Nour Square and downtown Nabatieh all hosted large crowds, calling for an end to the sectarian system that has ruled Lebanon for decades, state corruption and the squandering of public funds.
