Protesters march in the Achrafieh neighborhood a day after a car bomb attack that killed Brig. Gen. Wissam al-Hassan and at least seven others in Beirut, Lebanon, Oct. 20. Protesters burned tires and set up roadblocks around Lebanon on Saturday in a sign of boiling anger over a massive car bomb a day earlier-- a devastating attack that threatened to bring Syria's civil war to Lebanon. The writing on the woman's face reads, 'Rafik Hariri,' and 'Wissam al-Hassan.'
NBC News producer Paul Nassar reported an unusual calm had swept over Beirut.
Nassar added that the bomb was an especially devastating blow to the city because it came on the cusp of the major Islam holiday Eid, which starts next weekend.
