Lebanon's Prime Minister Hassan Diab is to propose the holding of early parliamentary elections to government on Monday in an attempt to address the country's political crisis, exacerbated by Tuesday's huge explosion in Beirut.

Hundreds of protesters took to the streets on Thursday, storming the foreign, economy and environment ministries as anger exploded over the deadly blast, which made hundreds of thousands homeless and shocked the world.

In a short address on Thursday evening that many Lebanese TV stations chose not to broadcast, Mr Diab said he will introduce a draft bill proposing early elections

"I am with the Lebanese people in wanting change," he said.

"We can't exit the country's structural crisis without holding early parliamentary elections."

He indicated he will stay in office for two months, saying "I want change like the Lebanese, too".

On rumours that the country had rejected aid, He said "this is not true. We need all the aid we can get".
