Lebanon has been marking a day of mourning after eight people died in riots which broke out in protests over power cuts.
 
Sunday's violence led to the highest death toll for a street disturbance since the crisis surrounding the murder of Rafiq al-Hariri, the former Lebanese prime minister, three years ago. It is not yet clear exactly how the victims - all Shia Muslims, including a member of a government opposition group - died.
 
The violence comes as Lebanon struggles with ongoing political deadlock, which has left the country without a president since November. Arab League foreign ministers, meeting in Cairo, have called for Michel Suleiman, the chief of the army, to be elected president.

What will the repercussions of the latest protests be? What effect, if any, will they have on Lebanon's wider domestic politics? Inside Story, with presenter Darren Jordon, examines the issues.
