Lebanese PM Saad Hariri returns to Beirut

In World

Lebanese PM Saad Hariri has arrived back in Beirut for the first time since announcing his resignation in Saudi Arabia more than two weeks ago.

Mr Hariri was greeted at Beirut international airport by members of the security forces as he disembarked from his plane.

Mr Hariri caused a political crisis when he quit during a visit to Riyadh.

He denied speculation that Saudi Arabia had forced him to quit as part of a regional power struggle with Iran.

Lebanese President Michel Aoun has refused to accept his resignation until he returns to present it in person.

On Saturday, Mr Hariri flew to Paris where he met French President Emmanuel Macron, who has been trying to broker a way out of the stalemate.
