Protest movement apologizes for scuffle at Energy MinistryThe "We Want Accountability" movement Tuesday voiced regret over a scuffle that erupted earlier in the day between its members and police during a protest outside the Energy and Water Ministry, accusing other "civilians" of instigating the violence. Hours earlier, police and some two-dozen activists from the group engaged in a brief scuffle during the protest outside the ministry.The sit-in began peacefully but turned into a brawl after a protester smashed a glass door when the activists tried to storm into the main gate of the heavily fortified ministry headquarters in Beirut's Corniche al-Nahr area. 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.
