Lebanese caretaker Prime Minister Saad Hariri on Tuesday called on the protestors across the country to restrain themselves, as Hezbollah-backed Najib Mikati is to be appointed as new Prime Minister, Xinhua reported.
  
Hariri said in a televised speech that it was his duty at this time to announce total rejection of all forms of riots and law- breaking activities.

"You are responsible for Lebanon's safety despite your anger. I understand your feelings and cries of anger," said Hariri in the speech.

Hariri's call came as the protests across Lebanon is spreading when Hezbollah-backed Najib Mikati won the majority support from the parliament.

Protestors in Tripoli, Saida, Beirut and other regions on Tuesday went to streets in response to Sunni MPs' call on Monday as the "day of rage" to condemn Shiite group Hezbollah's " intervention in Sunni issues". They burned tyres and opened fire in the air.
