Families of Islamist prisoners staged protests across Lebanon Friday, urging officials to speed up the issuance of an amnesty law.The protests, which included demonstrations in Sidon, Baalbek and Tripoli, also demanded that the amnesty be "all-inclusive," after President Michel Aoun affirmed Thursday that such amnesty would not include those involved in the killing of Army personnel. Families of prisoners involved in the 2013 Abra clashes held a protest in front of Sidon's Aisha mosque after Friday's prayer, the state-run National News Agency reported. The protesters demanded full amnesty that includes all of their relatives "without exception".
