Sunni leader says Hezbollah leading Lebanon into 'Syrian fire'

Lebanon's leading Sunni Muslim politician Saad al-Hariri accused Hezbollah on Saturday of dragging the country deeper into Syria's civil war after the Shiite militant group's leader said he was ready to go to Syria himself to fight.


Hariri, a former prime minister, was responding to a speech by Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah who said that a car bomb in Shiite southern Beirut would only redouble the group's military support for Syrian President Bashar Assad. "(Nasrallah's) speech takes Lebanon into deeper involvement in the Syrian fire," Hariri tweeted. (Reuters)
