Lebanon mulls crackdown on celebratory Hezbollah gunfire

Lebanese politicians are denouncing the volume of celebratory gunfire during a speech by the Hezbollah leader and seeking prosecutions of those responsible for firing bullets wildly into the Beirut air. On Friday afternoon the capital, Beirut, experienced particularly intense gunfire before and during a speech by Sheik Hassan Nasrallah. Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi said state prosecutors should identify and charge Hezbollah supporters who opened fire. “The streets of Beirut were turned yesterday afternoon to fields of fear,” said former Prime Minister Fuad Saniora.
