Amid Protests, Lebanon's Hariri Sets Deadline to Resolve Crisis

Timour Azhari/Al Jazeera

Prime Minister Saad Hariri has set a 72-hour deadline for his coalition partners to come up with solutions for Lebanon's economic crisis, as Friday's protests against austerity measures devolved into violence for a second day, Al-Jazeera reports.

The protests, which broke out over government plans for new taxes, are the most serious challenge to Hariri's national unity government which came to power less than a year ago.

Hariri, in an address to the nation, blamed parties in his coalition for obstructing reforms to Lebanon's debt-laden economy.

Do you support the concept of Armenia's Prime Minister that any solution of Karabakh conflict should be acceptable for the people of Armenia, people of Artsakh and people of Azerbaijan?
