Scuffles broke out between demonstrators and police in central Beirut on Tuesday as hundreds of people blocked roads to the Parliament preventing lawmakers from entering the building.
Protesters were filmed confronting police. The parliament's session was reportedly postponed as only a few lawmakers managed to enter.
Over the last few weeks, protesters in Lebanon have been taking to the streets to voice their discontent with deteriorating living conditions and austerity measures.
