Successful applicants for Lebanon's civil service ended a hunger strike Sunday in the Beirut Central District, having reportedly been told that Prime Minister Saad Hariri would meet with them next week to address obstructions to their employment.The protesters, who gathered at Riad al-Solh Square, had earlier been promised a meeting with Hariri once they had selected a delegation to represent them.Local media reports indicated that, of the 106 applicants for forest ranger positions who passed their exams, 17 were Christian while the rest were Shiite, Sunni and Druze.According to local media, the applicants announced in the early afternoon that they had begun a hunger strike outside Hariri's Downtown residence, saying they would maintain the strike until they were allowed to meet with the premier.
