Hundreds of protesters demonstrated along the capital’s main roads leading up the Downtown-based parliament in protest of the session, with several attempting to remove the barricades and barbed wire blocking the road - leading to clashes with security forces.
The parliamentary session was thus postponed due to lack of quorum.
Protests across the country continued, including cities such as Tripoli, Sidon and Tyre.
In Tripoli, demonstrations were held in front of telecommunications companies Alfa and MTC Touch, as well as Lebanese airline Middle East Airlines offices.
Several protesters were detained by security forces in the evening following clashes.
Banks reopened after 10 days of strike with soldiers deployed in front of each branch, with new measures imposed on all accounts. A weekly cap of USD1000 was set on all outgoing transfers and cash withdrawals.
