Anti-government protest in Beirut turns violent

BEIRUT, LEBANON (REUTERS) - Lebanese security forces fire tear gas and water canon to break up an anti-government protest, as the country's fractious leaders postpone talks aimed at resolving a political crisis that is feeding public discontent.

Formed last year, the Lebanese government has struggled to make decisions. The country is still without a president, at a time when the war in Syria has driven more than one million refugees into Lebanon.

Lebanon's parliament speaker canceled the last day of this week's session.
