Dozens of anti-government protesters clashed with police in Lebanon's rainy capital on Sunday, after a night of violence left hundreds wounded.

Security forces, including Lebanese military, were heavily deployed across downtown Beirut after Saturday saw the worst violence since the unrest erupted three months ago.

On Sunday, protesters gathered near the Lebanese parliament building, throwing stones at police, who responded with tear gas and water cannons.

Lebanon's public prosecutor ordered on Sunday the release of 34 people detained in clashes between security forces and anti-government protesters that wounded hundreds in the capital the previous night.
