Lebanon's deadlocked politicians fail again to choose president

Published: 06.09.14, 18:45 / Israel News

Lebanese parliamentarians failed on Monday in their sixth attempt to elect a new president, extending the political vacuum that emerged when former President Michel Suleiman's term ended two weeks ago.

 

The deadlock comes as the spillover from neighbouring Syria's civil war has deepened Lebanon's own longstanding divisions.
