BEIRUT (AP) - Lebanon's national unity government has collapsed
after Hezbollah ministers and their allies resigned over a
U.N.-backed tribunal investigating the assassination of Former
Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
The state-run National News Agency announced Wednesday that 11
ministers were stepping down from the 30-member Cabinet headed by
Western-backed Saad Hariri, the slain prime minister's son.
Hezbollah needed the backing of more than a third of the
ministers to bring down the government.
