Syrian's trying to vote for Bashar Assad riot in front of embassy in Lebanon
BEIRUT - Lebanese troops moved to subdue a crowd of frenzied Syrians who tried to storm their embassy in Beirut to vote for President Bashar Assad, using batons and sticks to push back people on Wednesday as expat balloting started ahead of Syria's June 3 presidential election.


The chaotic scenes - with Lebanese troops beating up the Syrians who scuffled back - unfolded about 50 meters (yards) from the embassy building in the Yarze district southeast of Beirut. (Associated Press)
