One person was killed and 6 others injured after the explosion that was triggered by fireworks launched by
Army supporters by few people at Martyrs Square. Annahar posted the picture of the victim that you can check [Here] if you want.

Update: Another video from Annahar WebTV
Who said this was triggered by army supporters, the army supporters left and the explosion took place way after… and the organizers confirmed that fireworks were not on program, nor they were aware of any sort of fireworks being offered for tonight… so why immediately jump to these assumptions?
You are actually right. I read Charbel’s statement and he was talking about the demo and not allowing fireworks but there’s no established connection yet based on Naharnet’s article and other sources.
I edited the “army supporters” but who would these people be? Random people with fireworks coming to light them up next to the demo?
We ll have to wait and see. Thanks for the note.
it’s not important who did it!
it’s a sad story and must serve as a good lesson for everyone and maybe it’s time to ban fireworks completely! (its already banned by the law)
i lived in France for a while and the only day per YEAR you hear fireworks is on the independence day.
in Lebanon people are still like small kids. i don’t know what they like about it!
they use it on every single wedding,birthday,party,graduation,funeral,event, saints memorial… what the hell does firework add up other than annoying sound, pollution of air and soil and the risk of fire and injury.
cant they enjoy their moments without it? is it a must?!
I agree….fireworks are lit here for the dumbest reasons. It must be to make up for not being allowed to fire a gun (unless you live in certain areas).
arabs and fire 😉
