Lebanon has announced a day of mourning for Friday after at least six people died and dozens were hurt in deadly fighting in Beirut. Gunfire broke out during a protest by Shia Muslim groups against the judge investigating last year's huge blast at the city's port. Hezbollah, which organised the protest, says demonstrators were fired on by gunmen on rooftops. They blamed a Christian faction, although the group denies the charge. Huge tension surrounds the inquiry into the port explosion that killed 219 in August 2020. Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog #BBCNews #Beirut #Lebanon
