After two weeks in Saudi Arabia that saw a surprise resignation and repeated reports he was being held against his will, reports Friday evening have Lebanese PM Saad Hariri leaving Saudi Arabia, and heading to France.
Hariri has denied being held against his will, but had repeatedly been reported in the Saudi press to have left the country in the past two weeks, only to still be there. Others have reported the Saudis are keen to see Hariri replaced with his elder brother.
Hariri says his long stay in Saudi Arabia was because he needed time to discuss Lebanon’s future. The rest of Lebanon is waiting to see what this has resulted in, as many top officials are under the impression he’s been being held.
Even Hariri heading to Paris doesn’t necessarily mean he’s “free,” either, with reports that his travel to France is basically him heading into exile. France has denied this, but there are no details on when, or even if, he’d be leaving France for Lebanon.

He is an Sunni pawn. No news here.
Lebanon would be so much better of if they could eliminate the Saudi influence.
The USA too would be so much better off if they could eliminate the influence of those who stabbed them in the back on nine 11….!!!!
