Saad Hariri

Beirut was rocked by the most violent government crackdown on protesters since nationwide demonstrations began two months ago.
By attacking protesters, Hezbollah is sending a message that it's willing to use force to protect its political power.
Saad al-Hariri stepped down after a Hezbollah-aligned group attacked protesters in Beirut.
Hundreds of thousands of people have been flooding the country's streets since Thursday in protest of the government's handling of a crippling economic crisis.
Unofficial results showed Hezbollah and its political allies won just over half the seats in Lebanon’s parliamentary election.

It's the first time he has been back after resigning as prime minister and spurring a political crisis.
After announcing his resignation in Saudi Arabia, Saad al-Hariri says he will return to Beirut and clarify his position.
After previously announcing his resignation while in Saudi Arabia, the Lebanese prime minister has now suspended that decision upon returning to Beirut.
