إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

A meeting was held between al-Mustaqbal movement leader Saad Hariri and head of the movement's parliamentary bloc MP Fouad Saniora in the French capital Paris, An Nahar newspaper reported on Thursday.

According to the report, Saniora briefed Hariri during the meeting that was held on Wednesday night on the latest consultations with the Lebanese foes in light of the announcement of the start of the trial in the case of Ayyash et al. on Januray 16, 2014.

The STL was set up to tackle the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

The newspaper said that the meeting also came ahead of a national conference for the March 14 alliance on Sunday in the northern city of Tripoli.

The attendees are expected to issue a final statement that rejects to consider Tripoli as a city for a certain sect that excludes all other.

Tripoli is regularly the scene of violence between its Sunni majority and a minority of Alawites -- the religious community from which Syria's President Bashar Assad hails.

Violence has usually pitted the Sunni neighborhood of Bab al-Tabbaneh, which backs the Syrian uprising, against the neighborhood of Jabal Mohsen, which is populated by Alawites.

Hariri also discussed with MPs Marwan Hamadeh and Nouhad al-Mashnouq on Tuesday the latest developments.

The Syrian uprising, which pits a Sunni-dominated rebellion against the Assad government, has inflamed existing sectarian tensions in Lebanon.

The mystery remains this: why was inspector Wissam al-Clouseau absent the day of the grand barbecue?

لماذا عارض "حزب الله" بشدّة تشكيل المحكمة الدولية إذا كان اللواء الشهيد وسام الحسن ضالعاً في اغتيال الرئيس الحريري ورفاقه وكذلك إسرائيل؟ ؟

@ ice-man,
Do you take your Fatwa from the Saudi Arabia's grand mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah al-Sheikh or from Saniora?
Sorry to intrude with unrelated question but as a Syrian revolutionist myself, I am trying to do my share by documenting Arab Spring Inspiration Figures (ASIF). So far, sadly, I will tell you, Saniora is losing to Alzawahiri and Saudi Mufti. The later are at 86%.
