After another night of violent clashes across Lebanon anti-government protesters gathered for a third day of rage Saturday in the biggest protests the country has seen in decades.
This is the night before as riots broke out again on the streets of the capital Beirut.
Fuelled by rising fury over an economic crisis the Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri gave his government partners a 72-hour deadline Friday to agree on reforms, hinting he may otherwise resign.
These latest protests kicked off over the rising cost of living and new tax plans.
It included a fee on WhatsApp calls, which was quickly retracted after thousands took to the streets.
Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah addressed supporters Saturday.
Saying the group opposed the government's resignation and that the country didn't have enough time for such a move given the acute financial crisis.
Warning that Lebanon could face "financial collapse".
The protests that have swept villages and towns across the country have sounded a lot like the 2011 Arab revolts that toppled four presidents.
Lebanese from all sects and walks of life have been chanting for Hariri's government to go.
It's this unusually wide cross section of society that highlights the rising anger among the Lebanese about the state of the economy.
And the government's inability to fix it.
