Lebanon protesters call off planned mass rally

Organisers of anti-corruption protesters assess damage after two nights of clashes with police, in which one man died.

    Anti-corruption protesters in Beirut, Lebanon's capital, have called off a large rally planned for Monday.

    Organisers are assessing the damage after two nights of clashes with police, in which one demonstrator was killed.

    The protests were intitially sparked a month ago by the failure of the authorities to remove household rubbish.

    But the focus has now been widened to include alleged government corruption and incompetence.
