Lebanese protest against the US meddling in their internal affairs

'' The protest turned nasty on Saturday, when security forces tried to clear protesters who gathered outside the government headquarters in anticipation of a visit by David Welch, the US assistant secretary of state.
Some of the protesters, waving Lebanese flags and carrying placards protesting against US influence in Lebanon and the Middle East, pelted police with stones.
One placard read: "Welch is not welcome in Lebanon".
Aljazeera reported that police used tear gas to disperse the anti-US demonstrators near government offices.
The demonstrators mostly belonged to the Baath Party, the Syrian National Social Party, Hizb Allah and the Amal Movement.''
