Hariri militia surrenders

Hariri gunmen are in talks to surrender to the Opposition.

The Opposition now controls all of West Beirut - except for Tarek al-Jadeedi. where Hariri fighters are trying to negotiate their escape, according to the Army.

Earlier this morning, Hariri TV station, Future TV was forced off air.

It is leading to hopes the violence - which has been described as war - will soon be over.

Many of the roads and airport are still closed.
