The Beirut riots - was Hizbollah to blame?

Four Shia died (including two students at the Beirut Arab University), killed by Hariri gunmen. 35 injured. The army caught...no-one.

Three Lebanese soldiers injured by gunmen. A gunman belonging to Walid Jumblatt's progressive Socialist Party has been arrested.

SSNP (Syrian Socialist Nationalist Party) offices burned down.

Welcome to civil conflict, brought to you courtesy of $48 billion of Hariri/Saudi/French/US debt.
