    It is feared the inquiry into Rafik Hariri's death in 2005 will spark fresh violence

    Ten ministers from the Shia movement Hezbollah and its allies have resigned amid a dispute over the UN tribunal investigating Rafik Hariri's murder.

    There are unconfirmed reports that one of the ministers of state, Adnan Sayyed Hussein, was also set to step down.

    Eleven resignations would be enough to automatically bring down the government of Prime Minister Saad Hariri.

    Tension has been high in Lebanon, amid indications that Hezbollah members could be indicted by the UN tribunal.

    On Tuesday, officials said efforts by the Syrian and Saudi Arabian governments to reach a political compromise had failed.

    There are widespread fears that a collapse of the government could spark an outbreak of sectarian violence, last seen in Beirut in 2008.

    I am sure Hezbollah is very concerned that they may look guilty. I think, the purpose of this resignatio­n is the dismantlem­ent of Lebanon and its official rebirth as a province of Syria and Iran.

    Just watch and see, Syria will keep the North and Iran the south in order to apply pressure on Israel and continue with its nuke building.
