BEIRUT, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- A protest was held on Tuesday in front of the French embassy in Beirut against the visit of a senior French official to Lebanon, the National News Agency reported.

Protesters said they consider the visit of the French official as an intervention in Lebanon's internal affairs.

Christophe Farnaud, head of North Africa and Middle East Department at the French Foreign Ministry, arrived in Lebanon on Tuesday to meet with Lebanese officials and protesters.
