A morning of chaos has left at least six people dead and many more injured in Beirut.

Hundreds of Hezbollah supporters and allies wearing black gathered at the Beirut Justice Palace on Thursday, calling for the removal of Judge Tarek Bitar from the Beirut Port explosion probe, accusing him of bias.

Unknown snipers on top of buildings shot to kill, while the army fought gunmen in the streets.

It is the worst street violence there in years.
