| Lebanon, Middle East

People in Lebanon have refused to end their protests even though a new government has been announced.

Many say they are tired of the corruption and a never-ending economic crisis.

Prime Minister Hassan Diab put together a new cabinet that he says is made up of technocrats with no political affiliations.

But many protesters say that is not the case and are demanding an overhaul of Lebanon's political system.
