Protests and demonstrations erupted for a second day in both Beirut and some areas of south Lebanon as a result of a leaked recoding showing Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil calling Speaker Nabih Berri a "thug" in a recent electoral meeting.The leaked video was not well received by officials and members of the Amal Movement, headed by Berri, and has soured relations between the speaker and Bassil.In response to the video protesters Monday burned tires, blocked roads and tore down banners of Bassil and President Michel Aoun, who founded the FPM, now headed by Bassil.Holding the Lebanese and Amal Movement's flags along with banners of Berri, they chanted "Don't worry Berri, we are your people".They also burned an FPM flag along with a photo of Bassil.
