BEIRUT – Protesters hurled rocks at security forces blocking a road near Lebanon’s parliament on Sunday in a second day of protests

against the government after a huge explosion last Tuesday killed dozens of people and injured thousands.

A Reuters correspondent said hundreds were converging on a main square where thousands of Lebanese protested on Saturday against a political elite they blame for the country’s economic and political woes

“We want to destroy and kill the government. They gave us no jobs nor rights,” said Nissan Ghrawi, a 19-year old unemployed demonstrator.
