Lebanon’s Justice Minister Resigns

Lebanon’s Justice Minister Resigns

BEIRUT - Lebanon's Justice Minister Marie Claude Najm, Information Minister Manal Abdel Samad, and Environment Minister Damianos Kattar have all resigned from their posts.
Lebanese police fired tear gas to try to disperse rock-throwing protesters blocking a road near Parliament in Beirut on Sunday in a second day of anti-government demonstrations triggered by last week's devastating explosion.
International leaders joined a virtual donor conference led by France and the UN in the aftermath of the devastating explosion, pledging nearly $300m in humanitarian assistance that will be "directly delivered to the Lebanese population".
US President Donald Trump has announced that the US will give "substantial" aid to Lebanon, but did not specify how much.
She called on the rest of the government to resign, and said she had also pressed for early elections due to the scale of Lebanon's crisis. (Aljazeera)
