Lebanon's Hezbollah, Christian allies boycott cabinet meeting| Reuters

BEIRUT The Lebanese Shi'ite Muslim group Hezbollah and allied Christian politicians boycotted a cabinet meeting on Thursday, a sign of rising political tensions that have paralysed Prime Minister Tammam Salam's national unity government. Ministers from the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM) led by Michel Aoun shunned the meeting in protest at what the party's website described as Salam's usurping of powers reserved for the president. A Hezbollah minister said the group had boycotted in solidarity with its allies #Business #Syria #Middle East #markets #Iran #United Kingdom #opinion
