A Lebanese woman lights candles during a vigil Wednesday night in front the United Nations headquarters in Beirut. Protesters held the vigil as a statement against the alleged chemical weapons attack on the suburbs of Damascus, Syria, by the Syrian government. Anti-government activists accused the Syrian regime of carrying out a toxic gas attack that is thought to have killed at least 100 people, including many children as they slept, during intense artillery and rocket barrages Wednesday.
