Ad-Diyar newspaper quoted on Sunday an unnamed March 14 source as saying that the aim of power-cut protests might be to overthrow the government, instead of their avowed aim to criticize electricity shortages in the country.

The Hezbollah backed March 8 coalition planned the protests after it realized it cannot stop the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) or postpone its indictment, the source added.
