As the national power supply in Lebanon drops to just eight hours a day, residents of two towns have taken to the streets to protest.

According to a report by the National News Agency, residents from the villages of Barja and Daraya in Iqlim al-Kharroub took to the streets and burned tyres and set up roadblocks as negotiations with police and the army took place. The Progressive Socialist Party also issued a statement saying that the residents of Iqlim al-Kharroub would no longer tolerate the power cuts.
