BEIRUT (AP) — Armed clashes have broken out during a protest in Beirut against the lead judge investigating last year’s massive blast in the city's port. The protest outside the Justice Palace was called by the powerful Hezbollah group and its allies who are demanding the removal of the judge. It was not clear what triggered the gunfire. A journalist with The Associated Press saw one man open fire with a pistol during the protest.
