The London-based rights group Amnesty is calling on Lebanese authorities to investigate allegations that security forces have used excessive force to disperse rallies protesting the government failure to deal with garbage piling up in the streets. The statement comes ahead of a major rally planned in Beirut Saturday amid worries it would also descend into clashes. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla)
