Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives

Voices, crying for an end to the foreign rule of Lebanon by Syria, are now sounding off!

Officials say that nearly one million people have gathered for an opposition rally in Beirut, a month after the death of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

The BBC's Kim Ghattas in Beirut says the crowds have turned the city centre into a sea of red, white and green - the colours of Lebanon's national flag, in a protest against the continuing presence of Syrian forces in Lebanon.
