    BEIRUT: Protesters took to the streets of Beirut Saturday on International Women’s Day to demand better protection for women amid an uproar over husbands murdering their wives. The march by some 4,000 women, men and children from the National Museum to the Palace of Justice, was led by mothers and other relatives of women they said had been the victims of domestic violence. Urging parliament to adopt a bill that would set prison terms of up to 25 years with forced labor for men convicted of murdering a female relative, many women wept as they walked.
