Residents of Beirut's Karantina area staged a protest Friday against plans to build a trash incinerator in the working class neighborhood as part of a government initiative to deal with Lebanon's waste crisis.Plans for an incinerator, part of Environment Minister Tarek Khatib's waste plan that was endorsed by Cabinet last week, have been thoroughly rejected by activists and environmentalists.Despite environmentalists' pleas, Cabinet last week said tenders for the location and construction of incinerators would be determined within six months.
