With shouts of “Syria out!,” more than 25,000 flag-waving protesters massed outside Parliament on Monday in a dramatic display of defiance that swept out Lebanon’s pro-Syrian government two weeks after the assassination of a former prime minister. Cheering broke out among the demonstrators in Martyrs’ Square when they heard Prime Minister Omar Karami’s announcement on loudspeakers that the government was stepping down. Throughout the day, protesters handed out red roses to soldiers and police.


… Many in Lebanon accuse Syria and Karami’s government of being behind the slayings of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and 16 others in a huge Feb. 14 bombing, pressing hard in the two weeks since for the government to resign and for Syria to withdraw its roughly 15,000 troops positioned in Lebanon.
