Muslimpress:As the protests over waste disposal in the capital city of Lebanon continued, the government agreed to start the waste disposal services again. After weeks of protests over piles of rubbish left in the streets of the capital Beirut, the cabinet agreed to help with the disposal. Ministers decided in an emergency meeting to give local municipalities the authority to treat local waste. Protests triggered by rotting rubbish in Beirut quickly grew into a wider attack on the perceived corruption and incompetence of politicians. Demonstrators earlier pelted eggs at politicians' cars outside parliament. The rubbish crisis began after the country's largest landfill in Naameh, south of Beirut, shut down in July with no ready alternative. The government has been unable to agree on another site until now.
