Organizers of the "You stink" protests that have captivated the Lebanese capital say they are postponing demonstrations set for Monday evening.

Protest organizers announced the delay Monday morning on the You Stink movement's Facebook page, saying they would hold a news conference later in the day to explain their decision.

The protests, sparked by a garbage-collection crisis that has left trash piled in the streets for weeks, have grown into a grassroots movement demanding the resignation of the entire government.

A second night of protests on Sunday led to clashes with police that left at least 44 demonstrators and 30 police officers injured, according to authorities.

Lebanon has been plagued by government paralysis that has left the country without a president for more than a year.
