Sectarian clashes*1

Lebanon's Daily Star reports that Shias and Sunnis clashed in west Beirut following the speech by Hassan Nasrallah:

The fight broke out when supporters of Hizbullah and Amal paraded in the streets of Corniche al-Mazraa, a predominantly Sunni neighborhood, shortly after Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah concluded his speech to mark Liberation Day.

Sources added that after verbal insults were traded, the fight degenerated and the two groups exchanged gunfire.
