Beirut streets were seen occupied by anti-government protesters on Sunday, as people gathered to demand the country's political leaders to resign over a crippling economic crisis.

People were seen dancing and chanting slogans, with a brawl erupting during the protest. Some were also seen wearing masks and face paint.

"We are tired, we have seen war, injustice, and everything. All this is enough. It is time to feel us. We have many demands and things that we want to achieve but we cannot, many are things that we do not have. In other countries, everything is achieved, but in our country, it is different," said one of the protesters.

The protests erupted on Thursday when new austerity measures announced by Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri triggered widespread discontent across the country.
