Security concrete blocks have been removed and a key road has been reopened outside Speaker Nabih Berri's residence in Beirut's Ain el-Tineh area.

The move will facilitate the flow of traffic towards the Ramlet el-Bayda area and comes at Berri's instructions according to LBCI TV.

Parliament Police chief Brig. Gen. Youssef Dimashq oversaw the process.

Interior Minister Raya al-Hassan lauded Berri's move and thanked him in a tweet.

Concrete blocks protecting the houses of some politicians and the offices of some political parties have been removed in several Beirut and Mount Lebanon areas in recent days.

Al-Hassan's first step as an interior minister was the removal of similar blocks that had impeded traffic around the ministry's building in Sanayeh.

The concrete blocks had been placed around several sensitive buildings during a period of unrest that the country witnessed in the wake of the Syrian conflict.
