Lebanon: 1 Killed In Clashes Outside Iranian Embassy

One person was killed when two groups clashed near the Iranian Embassy in Beirut, Al Jazeera reported June 9. The conflict occurred in the midst of demonstrations against the involvement of Hezbollah and Iran in Syria. The army has since taken control of the area and set up barricades. Hezbollah's popularity has declined since its decision to involve itself in the Syrian conflict, but this is a price the group is likely willing to pay to ensure that the al Assad regime retains its hold on power.
