BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - Tens of thousands of Lebanese Hezbollah supporters have been holding a massive rally to protest Israel's air assault on the Gaza Strip.
As the rain poured down in Beirut today, demonstrators thronged a huge square and nearby streets in the militant group's stronghold south of the city.
The rally was by far the largest protest in the Arab world, where outrage has been growing over Israel's air strikes on Hamas targets in Gaza.
Hezbollah's leader addressed the crowd in a broadcast from an unknown location. He urged the Arab and Islamic world to rise up in support of Gaza.
There were also protests in Egypt, Iran, Iraq and Jordan. Earlier today, Jordan's King Abdullah donated blood for Gaza victims, telling reporters he was "upset" by the scale of the Israeli offensive.
