Lower turnout as protesters rally against new Lebanon PM

Protesters call for economic, political reforms as Prime Minister-designate Hassan Diab readies to pick new cabinet.

    Protesters have continued to take to the streets in Lebanon's capital Beirut where police and demonstrators have clashed.

    Prime Minister-designate Hassan Diab's appointment has split the country into two camps: Sunni and Shia, as Diab is backed by Hezbollah.

    But some seem prepared to give Diab a shot at the job as Lebanon faces its worst economic crisis in decades.
