Anti-Syrian President Bashar Assad protesters, hold Arabic banners which read:"In mourning for the lives of the freedom martyrs in Syria, with a black shirt and red rose, right, and Freedom is coming despite the massacre, left," during a buffer between pro and anti-Assad protesters, in Beirut, Lebanon, on Monday May 23, 2011. In neighboring Lebanon, meanwhile, Lebanese soldiers acted as a buffer between pro- and anti-Assad protesters who blocked traffic Monday in Beirut's main commercial and residential Hamra Street, highlighting concerns that the crisis in Syria could spill over into tiny Lebanon. Many in Lebanon support the uprising in Syria, which maintained troops in the country for 29 years before withdrawing in 2005. less
