Forty-eight hours after a new wave of protests hit Tripoli demanding the release of detainees held for their involvement in the clashes [that erupted earlier this year], the northern Lebanese city failed on Thursday to take a serious initiative to end the sit-in staged by the detainees’ relatives and to reopen the roads they had blocked. Meanwhile, the finger pointing continued as political factions blamed each other for the current situation.
