rotesters assembled in Beirut on Sunday to demonstrate their anger at the killing of a top intelligence official who died in a Friday car bombing blamed on the Syrian regime. The demonstrators attempted to storm the Lebanese government headquarters because they believe the government is too close to Syria and its ally in Lebanon, the Shiite group Hezbollah. Lebanese soldiers fired guns into the air and used tear gas to try to hold back the crowds. The protest occurred as the funeral of the official, Brigadier General Wissam al-Hassan, took place in Beirut's Martyrs' Square.
