The controversial general amnesty

in AFRICA by

Hundreds of protesters, especially families of Islamic prisoners, gathered in the Lebanese capital demanding that the Islamic prisoners be part of the controversial general amnesty that should anticipate the country’s elections scheduled for May. The Lebanese authorities have not granted a general amnesty since 1990, after the end of the civil war. If this were to happen, hundreds of Sunni Islamists would benefit from it, including some who clashed with the military, following the clashes between Sunnis and Shiites in northern Lebanon, and extremists believed to belong to al-Qaeda-related groups or to the Islamic State.
