Lebanon Speaker says government still stands after PM quit

BEIRUT – Lebanon's parliament speaker Nabih Berri said on Wednesday that the government still stands after the prime minister's shock resignation, according to sources who met with him.


Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri's resignation in a weekend broadcast from Saudi Arabia "in this form" will not change the government's capacities, the sources cited Berri as saying.
