Army on the streets of Lebanon

The Lebanese Army has been sent out on to the streets of Beirut, Tripoli and other cities. The situation has been described as an 'unofficial state of emergency'.

Widescale protests, and even riots are feared when the Mehlis report into Hariri's death is published tomorrow.

The report has been finished, and the first copies have already been printed. A copy is already in the hands of UN Secretary General Kofi Annan.

The report is the most important event for the Levant since the end of Lebanon's Civil War - depending on what it says, the Mehlis report could change the region's future.

I hope Syria will make it clear to Lebanon and the US and France that sanction against Syria will translate to sanctions and aginst Lebanon and closer of transportion through syria to iraq,and jordon,it is time for syria to fight for arab nationalism and call for arab and islamic support with all means.this is the time where syria will find out who are the freinds of the Syrian people.
