SNAP SNAP: Lebanese police say 800,000 people are demonstrating

The Lebanese Opposition has managed to get 800,000 people into central Beirut to call for Prime Minister Fouad Siniora to resign. That's according to police.

Police say up to one-million are on their way.

Last week's pro-government rally on the day of Pierre Gemayel's funeral managed to get around 100,000.

A camp is going to be set up tonight, and people will sleep there until the PM quits.
