Angry Beirut protests greet Blair

UK Prime Minister Tony Blair visits Lebanon and sparks angry protests against his visit. Click through for full story, including video footage of the protest. Aggrieved at what they see as the UK's pro-Israel bias, several protesters disrupted a news conference, shouting, "Shame on you" A British woman registered her disapproval at Mr Blair's foreign policy, sporting a T-shirt with the slogan "ashamed to be British" during a press conference. Seriously, break out the rotton tomatoes.
