Prime Minister Saad Hariri set on Friday a three-day ultimatum for his political rivals to unite and fix Lebanon’s dire economy, as tens of thousands of anti-government protesters rallied across the country for a second day.
The protests, which broke out over plans for new taxes, are the most serious challenge to Hariri’s national unity government, which came to power less than a year ago.
At least two people have died during the protests in the country.
