Club-wielding men wearing the yellow band identified with the Hezbollah terrorist organization killed protesters in an attack on anti-Hezbollah demonstration outside the Iranian embassy in Beirut on Sunday.
It was not known if the attackers were Hezbollah guards or were sympathizers with Hezbollah, which dominate the neighborhood of the embassy.
One man reportedly opened fire at protesters, who answered the call of the small Lebanese Option party to show their opposition to Hezbollah’s intervention on the side of Syrian President Bashar Assad in the civil war that has killed more than 80,000 people in two years.
Lebanon is deeply divided between anti-Syrian and pro-Syrian parties allied with Hezbollah.
