Parts of Lebanon go on strike to protest economic conditions

BEIRUT -- Parts of Lebanon's public and private sectors went on a union-organized strike Friday to protest worsening economic conditions and months of delay in the formation of a new government.


The one-day strike was called for by the General Confederation of Lebanese Workers, with the backing of the new cross-sectarian Sabaa Party.


It comes amid a political stalemate and an ongoing economic crisis. Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri has not been able to form a new government since parliamentary elections last May due to political bickering among rival groups.
