  • Lebanese take protests to the sea as political crisis deepens
Sharjah24 – Reuters: Fishermen in the southern city of Sidon took their small boats and sailed out to sea on Monday (November 11) in protest against Lebanese politicians' failure to appoint a new cabinet. They were joined at sea by other demonstrators who fixed Lebanese flags on their boats.
In the capital Beirut, protesters camped overnight outside the country's Electricity Headquarters and demanded a consistent supply of electricity. They plan to camp out until 1800 local time (1600 GMT).
