Lebanon’s governing coalition is no more after 11 ministers representing the powerful Hezbollah movement and its political allies resigned and called on President Michel Suleiman to form a new government. The wave of resignations was enough to bring down Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri, the son of slain leader Rafiq Hariri. The standoff between Hariri and his Hezbollah ministers centres around an ongoing investigation by the UN-backed Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) into the elder Hariri’s assassination. Hezbollah wants Saad al-Hariri to disavow the STL as part of a U.S.-Israeli plot. The resignations come amidst unconfirmed reports the STL is set to indict senior Hezbollah members in connection with the 2005 assassination.
