Now Lebanon - Qadiri to cabinet: Why was attack on Hamra protesters ignored? - August 11, 2011

Future bloc MP Ziad al-Qadiri submitted a request to the cabinet via Speaker Nabih Berri for an inquiry “on why it completely ignored” the attack on anti-Syrian regime protesters in the Beirut neighborhood of Hamra in front of the Syrian embassy on August 2.
“[Security] incidents such as this one come as a result of the cabinet’s neglect of the state’s sovereign tasks,” he said according to the National News Agency on Thursday.
“Why didn’t the cabinet specify who stands behind the August 2 attack? Did the relevant authorities begin investigating the incident? [If so], what are the results of the investigation? What are the measures that the cabinet intends to take in order to reveal the circumstances of the incident?”
Dozens of supporters of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad attacked a pro-democracy rally in Hamra, leaving at least five injured.
