Lebanon PM to introduce bill proposing early elections

Lebanon’s prime minister says he will introduce a draft bill proposing early elections for the crisis-stricken country, as police clashed with demonstrators in Beirut following the explosion that devastated large parts of the city and killed more than 150 people. In a televised speech, prime minister Hassan Diab called on all political parties to put their disagreements aside and work together. He said he is ready to stay in the post for two months to allow for politicians to work together on implementing structural reforms.
