CrisisWatch Digest - October

What happened? The official investigation into the catastrophic August 2020 Beirut port explosion widened divisions within the newly formed government and sparked a violent street battle when Shiite protesters marched through a Christian neighbourhood in the capital Beirut, killing seven Shiites.

Why does it matter? The investigation standoff is aggravating Lebanon’s governance crisis, which has hampered critical reforms needed to counter the downward economic spiral. Clashes in Beirut reflect rising sectarian tensions and the danger of further incidents where Christian and Shiite residential areas intersect.
