At least six people were killed and dozens of others were injured in heavy shooting in Beirut, near a demonstration of supporters of Hezbollah and the Amal movement, in protest against a ruling issued Thursday morning rejecting the complaint calling for a change of the judge assigned to the Beirut port explosion case.

The sound of RPG7 rockets was heard in the capital, Beirut, after the army deployed in the streets to prevent any clashes and chase the shooters.

Local television channels broadcast pictures of terrified people in the streets of the capital, Beirut, fleeing the scene of the shooting, in all directions, fearing for their lives.
