Syria's protracted civil war is spilling across its borders, creating breeding grounds for extremists, sharpening sectarian schisms and threatening to destabilize U.S. allies in the Middle East.
A senior member of Lebanon's Parliament on Monday accused the government of colluding with assassins and said it must resign to prevent the country from drifting into chaos.
"The developments in Syria are so dangerous [they] cannot happen without having any consequences on the Lebanese situation," Mr. Harb said Monday at the Aspen Institute in Washington, D.C.
"We believe that this government now is a threat against the security of the country and the government is plotting with the murderers to kill us," said Boutros Harb, a leader in the March 14 alliance, a coalition of Lebanese political parties and independent candidates that is opposed to Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime.
