Three separate protests were held Monday by groups of young men in Tripoli in response to insults made against Sheikh Omar Atrash during a demonstration the day before, raising tensions in the northern city.The protest was in response to another which was held on Sunday night, when several people protested in the Beirut suburb of Hadath against rumors that the judiciary had taken a decision to release Atrash, a Sunni sheikh who was apprehended last month and confessed to having a role in recent car bombings in Lebanon.Atrash was charged last week with involvement in the Jan. 2 and Jan. 21 suicide car bombings in the southern suburbs.
