MIDEAST: Lebanese President Aoun has designated former education minister Hassan
Diab as the next prime minister following former PM Saad Hariri's announcement
he would not take up the position again. Lebanon's complex political system
means the PM must be a Sunni Muslim, the president a Christian, and the speaker
of parliament a Shia. 
- There have been large-scale protests in the capital, Beirut, over the past
several days. These emanated from anger following rumours that ousted PM Hariri
would be re-instated given the deadlock in negotiations over his successor. 
- Additional violence has come from Shia protestors, angry at a video where a
man supposedly insults the Prophet Muhammad. 
- Lebanon has been politically unstable for years, but is emblematic of the
high-level of political and social instability in the Middle East that has
intensified recently. 
- Israel remains stuck in a cycle of inconclusive elections, mass protests have
broken out in Iran and claimed the scalps of the PMs of Lebanon and Iraq, and
Syria and Yemen remain in states of civil war.
