Lebanon Takeover

Here’s a story we should have mentioned today:

The United States has said there is “mounting evidence” that Syria, Iran and Hezbollah are planning to topple the Lebanese government.

The White House said Syria hoped to stop the formation of an international tribunal to try suspects in the killing of former Lebanese PM Rafik Hariri.

Spokesman Tony Snow said any attempt to destabilise the Lebanese government would violate UN resolutions.

Syria’s ambassador to the US rejected the allegations as “ridiculous”.

A UN team has been investigating who was behind Mr Hariri’s death in 2005.
