Police skirmish with Lebanon protesters outside Energy MinistryPolice and a couple dozen activists from the We Want Accountability movement demanding round the clock power Tuesday engaged in a brief scuffle during a protest outside the Energy Ministry. The movement criticized corruption in the electricity sector which stretched to 75 percent, accusing officials of creating "generator mafias".Activists accused the police of breaking the window, however footage broadcast on MTV clearly showed that one of the protesters wearing black had smashed it. But it wasn't clear what the protester used to break the glass, as it appeared to shatter with relatively little effort.
