The Lebanese Forces (LF) denied on Thursday any involvement in Thursday's shootings in Beirut, after Shi'ite Muslim group Hezbollah had said the Christian party was to blame. The LF said it strongly condemned Thursday's events and blamed the violence on Hezbollah's "incitement" against the lead investigator into last year's Beirut port blast.

Hezbollah has called for the judge to be removed. (Reporting By Maha El Dahan and Laila Bassam; Editing by Edmund Blair)
