Hezbollah says Saudi Arabia forced Lebanon PM to resign

BEIRUT, Nov 5 (Reuters) - The leader of Lebanese Shi‘ite militia Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, said on Sunday that Saudi Arabia had forced Lebanon’s Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri to resign, and called for calm and patience in Lebanon.

“The resignation was a Saudi decision dictated to prime minister Saad al-Hariri and forced on him,” Nasrallah said in a televised broadcast.
