Lebanon's Hariri postpones cabinet meeting after shootout

BEIRUT, July 2 (Reuters) - Lebanon’s Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri will delay Monday’s cabinet meeting for 48 hours to allow tensions to calm down after a shootout in the Chouf Mountains on Sunday in which two aides of a government minister were killed.

In a televised address, Hariri said the judiciary would take all steps to hold those who had committed the crime accountable.
