 Lebanon's cabinet under pressure as ministers quit

BEIRUT 10 Aug (ANA) - Lebanese protesters have called for a rally outside Baabda palace to demand President Michel Aoun to step down after resignations by several ministers, with the justice minister the latest to go.
A cabinet meeting is scheduled for today amid reports that the whole government might resign. If a total of seven ministers resign, the cabinet would effectively become a caretaker government.
Some Lebanese doubt change is possible in a country where sectarian politicians have dominated the country since the 1975-90 civil war.
"It won't work, it's just the same people. It's a mafia," said Antoinette Baaklini, an employee of an electricity company that was demolished in the blast.(ANA)
