  • Lebanon's government has approved a package of economic reforms that it hopes will end the biggest protests to sweep the country in more than a decade. Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators have vented their anger at what they see as a corrupt political class pushing the economy to collapse. But as Sarah Morice reports, the new measures have not impressed protesters.

    they need to do much more than promises. they need to put immediate plans to build electric plants and water. Half the size of the government and replace all ministers with new blood, educated and specialist in their subjects. OH, and get rid of Hezbollah- ship them to Iran or Gaza to liberate Palestine.
