Angry Sunni protesters remove a poster of Prime Minister-designate Najib Mikati in the northern port city of Tripoli, Lebanon, Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2011. Thousands of Sunnis waved flags, burned tires and torched a van belonging to Al Jazeera on Tuesday during a "day of rage" to protest gains by the Shi'ite militant group Hezbollah, which now has enough support in parliament to control Lebanon's next government. In the second and final day of consultations to choose a new prime minister Tuesday, a majority of Lebanese lawmakers voted to support Mr. Mikati, the candidate backed by the Iranian-backed Hezbollah.
