Protests erupt in Lebanon's capital

Marchers try to storm office of PM in Beirut following public funeral of slain spy chief aligned with the opposition.

    Tensions remain high in Beirut where protesters have been fighting the police following the funeral of Lebanon's spy chief Brigadier-General Wissam al-Hassan.
     
    Scores of demonstrators gathered outside Najib Mikati's office, demanding that the prime minister resign. 

    The protesters are accusing his government of being involved in the assassination of al-Hasan.
