In Lebanon, a series of security incidents have taken place as the country slides further into economic and political turmoil. The latest clashes that left one dead and two injured took place in the predominately Sunni area of Tariq al Jdideh. This last round of violence came on the heels of two other security incidents in the wake of the August 4 Port of Beirut explosion.
