At least three people were injured in central Beirut when a march in defence of LGBT rights was attacked by a group of purported Christian extremists. As the march passed through the Shohada and Riad al Solh squares, a group of men on motorcycles, allegedly members of the Lebanese far-right Christian group Soldiers of God, tried to impede its progress. The men chanted slogans against “any kind and form of homosexuality in the streets of Beirut,” the official Lebanese news agency ANN reported. Shortly after the march began, the bikers attempted to paralyse it, while others from the same group went to the Ministry of Interior to request an order to cancel the march. The bikers threatened the parade and chanted slogans against the legalisation of homosexuality.
