Lebanon’s Nasrallah backs government amid raging protests

Lebanon’s influential Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said on Saturday that the Shia movement does not want the government to resign, as mass anti-government protests entered its third day.
Prime Minister Saad Hariri, who has accused rival groups in the government of blocking his reforms, has given them 72 hours to find a solution.
At least two people have been killed in demonstrations pushing for political change and reforms to reduce the cost of living.

Rami Khouri, a senior public policy fellow and professor at the American University of Beirut, talks to Al Jazeera about recent developments in the country’s protests.
