Fresh rallies in Lebanon over months-old rubbish crisis

Thousands of people have rallied in Beirut to demand the government's resignation over its failure to handle an eight-month rubbish crisis, as ministers put forward a temporary solution to the problem by opening three landfills.

More than 2,000 people marched on Saturday from east of Beirut's busy Sassine Square junction to the Downtown area, shutting down roads and prompting residents along the route to come to their balconies and cheer.
