Lebanon's Prime Minister Hariri Has Resigned + Says His Life Is In Danger

Lebanon's Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri resigned on Saturday, saying he believed there was an assassination plot against him and accusing Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah of sowing strife in the Arab world.

His resignation thrusts Lebanon back into the frontline of Saudi-Iranian regional rivalry and seems likely to exacerbate sectarian tensions between Lebanese Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims.

It also shatters a coalition government formed last year after years of political deadlock, and which was seen as representing a victory for Shi'ite Hezbollah and Iran. Hariri, who is closely allied with Saudi Arabia, alleged in a televised broadcast that Hezbollah was "directing weapons" at Yemenis, Syrians and Lebanese and said the Arab world would "cut off the hands that wickedly extend to it".

It was not immediately clear who might succeed Hariri, Lebanon's most influential Sunni politician. The post of prime minister is reserved for a Sunni Muslim in Lebanon's sectarian power sharing system. The constitution requires Aoun to nominate the candidate with the greatest support among MPs.
