Tiny Minority of Extremists Update: “Huge crowd gathers in Beirut for opposition rally,” by Yara Bayoumy for Reuters, :
BEIRUT (Reuters) – Tens of thousands of flag-waving Lebanese poured into central Beirut on Friday for a Hezbollah-led protest aimed at bringing down the Western-backed government, which has vowed it will not yield to the pressure.
Pro-Syrian Hezbollah and its allies have called on Lebanese from across the country to take part in the opposition protest. It is due to start at 3 p.m. (1300 GMT) and will be followed by an indefinite sit-in near the government offices.
Hezbollah, which is backed by Syria and Iran, has branded the government a U.S. puppet.
And what they want it to be is a Syrian puppet.
