Lebanese justice minister resigns

 
BEIRUT 10 Aug (ANA) - Lebanon's Justice Minister Marie Claude Najm, Information Minister Manal Abdel Samad, and Environment Minister Damianos Kattar have all resigned from their post.
 
Lebanese police fired tear gas to try to disperse rock-throwing protesters blocking a road near Parliament in Beirut on Sunday in a second day of anti-government demonstrations triggered by last week's devastating explosion.
 
International leaders joined a virtual donor conference led by France and the UN in the aftermath of the devastating explosion, pledging nearly $300m in humanitarian assistance that will be "directly delivered to the Lebanese population".
 
US President Donald Trump has announced that the US will give "substantial" aid to Lebanon, but did not specify how much.
 
The IMF said it is willing to redouble efforts to help Lebanon after the devastating explosion, but said all of the country's institutions needed to show willingness to carry out reforms.(ANA)
