Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diab addressed the nation Monday night, announcing his resignation and that of his cabinet.

Three ministers, and nine members of the parliament, had already stepped down after mass protests against the government erupted in the country.

The cabinet was formed in January with the support of the Iran-backed Hezbollah group and its allies.
