Lebanese PM resigns, citing assassination plot


Lebanon's Prime Minister Saad Hariri has announced his resignation, according to the Independent.

Mr Hariri accused Iran of meddling in Arab affairs, and criticised its Lebanese ally Hezbollah, adding: "Iran's arms in the region will be cut off."

He believes there is a "plot to target his life," he said in a televised address.

The climate in Lebanon is similar to that in the period leading up to his father's assassination in 2005, he added.
