#Lebanon’s police officers scuffled with protesters on Monday as they attempted to block a main road in central #Beirut known as the Ring Bridge.

The #protesters sat on the ground attempting to block several roads in the Tabaris area next to the Ring Bridge that connects East and West Beirut.

Protesters first took to the streets in October over proposed new taxes.

But the nationwide demonstrations quickly grew into calls for an end to the rule of the political elite that has run the country since the 1975-90 civil war ended.

The protesters blame the government for widespread corruption and mismanagement, which they say are the main reasons for the country’s financial crisis.
