A Lebanese Christian Party has announced it is quitting the government after a third day of protests across the country against tax increases and alleged official corruption.

After tens of thousands took to the streets, four Ministers from the Lebanese Forces Party, a traditional ally of Prime Minister Saad Hariri, resigned from his Cabinet.

Hariri has given his deeply divided coalition until Monday evening to commit to a reform package aimed at shoring up the government’s Finances and securing the disbursement of desperately needed economic assistance from donors.
