Lebanese security forces unleashed a barrage of gunfire and tear gas in central Beirut on Sunday to disperse hundreds of protesters trying to storm the government headquarters after the funeral of a top Lebanese intelligence official killed by a car bomb.
Former Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora is warning that a congressional effort to cut funds to the country's armed forces would be "a gift" to Hezbollah and its Iranian allies.
"Continuing in this road will only lead us to more losses and more dire circumstances," Mr. Siniora said.
"Just as we stood together to confront the [Israeli] aggression ... let us build on what joins us, and resolve what separates us," he said, just before Lebanese leaders from all factions, including Hezbollah, met in Paris for crisis talks that ended Sunday night with little progress to report.
