Tensions from the waging war in Syria spilled over to neighboring Lebanon as angry protestors and Lebanese troops brawl in the streets after the funeral of a slain police official, the L.A. Times reported.
The violent protests erupted in Beirut when Sunni mourners attempted to storm the office of the prime minister in response to the assassination of Brig. General Wissam al-Hassan, the Washington Post reported.
The protest was sparked when speakers urged Sunnis to take revenge against the Hezbollah-led government for al-Hassan's death, the Washington Post reported.
Lebanese attempted to disperse the crowd of hundreds by using tear gas and firing into the air, the L.A. Times reported.
The protest ended after about and hour and there were no casualties, the L.A. Times reported.
