A fistfight erupted Tuesday evening between anti-government protesters and supporters of MP Ziad Aswad outside the Diwan Beirut Restaurant in Antelias.
The protesters were objecting at Aswad having dinner at a restaurant while the country is going through a dire economic and financial crisis. Such forms of protest have targeted several politicians in recent weeks.
MTV said a woman was injured in the altercation before security forces intervened and contained the situation.
Al-Jadeed TV later reported the arrival of Free Patriotic Movement supporters and the MPs Eddie Maalouf and Elias Bou Saab to the restaurant to show solidarity with Aswad.
