They have been taking out their frustrations on the United Nations headquarters there. The building houses all the UN’s various agencies. Demonstrators have been demanding that the US ambassador quit the country. UN staff are said to have sought refuge in the basement of the building. The European Union’s headquarters in Beirut are being evacuated in case the violence spreads.
