(BEIRUT, LEBANON) — A LBC television reporter was attacked on Saturday while covering the ongoing Beirut protests triggered by a month-long trash crisis and a non-functioning cabinet or parliament.
Reporter Nada Andraos Aziz can be heard screaming as police and protesters surround her amid intense water cannons and tear gas.
According to her Facebook page, Aziz was shaken but not injured following the altercation. Hundreds have posted on her page thanking her for “honest reporting.”
The ongoing demonstrations are the largest in several years, according to several media reports.
