The clashes broke out amid a protest by Hezbollah supporters calling for the removal of the judge leading a probe into last year’s port explosion, Al Jazeera reported.
The Lebanese army was deployed to control the situation and warned that they would shoot any armed person found on the street. Nine people were arrested by the Lebanese Army following the clashes, Al Jazeera said.
