Lebanese Government to quit on Monday?

The Lebanese Government, led by Prime Minister Omar Karami, is to resign.

The opposition have been calling for a vote of confidence in Parliament. And Karami - a close ally of Syria - has agreed. He was appointed after last year's resignation of Rafiq al-Hariri.

He said... "I am for the resignation of the government if that will overcome the current crisis and pave the way for a serious dialogue among all sides."

The vote in Parliament will take place on Monday, two weeks after Hariri was killed. A national strike has also been called by the opposition for Monday. On Monday this week, the opposition arranged the largest demonstration in recent Lebanese history.
