The area adjacent to the Justice Palace in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, has turned into an arena for armed clashes that killed at least six people and wounded dozens.

The clashes, in which rocket-propelled grenades were used, coincided with a vigil organized by supporters of Hezbollah and the Amal movement to demand the resignation of the investigative judge in the case of the Beirut port explosion, Tariq Bitar.

Who is Bitar, and how did the divisions over him reach the point of armed clashes?
