A protester stages a sit-in on a street near the parliament building in Beirut, Lebanon, Friday, June 21, 2013. A group of protesters stayed overnight to protest against the 128-member parliament that extended its term by a year and a half last month, skipping scheduled elections because of deteriorating security conditions in the country related to the war in Syria. The Arabic on the placard reads, "This council (parliament) is council, and the square is ours." (AP Photo/Bilal Hussein)
