    Political paralysis

     

    Lebanon has been politically paralysed for more than three months following the resignation of six government ministers.

     

    Clashes between activists of the Western-backed government of Fuad Siniora, the prime minister, and the opposition led by the Shia Hezbollah movement have resurrected fears of a new civil war.

     

    Weapons and explosives, and accusations about arms stockpiling, have further heightened fears of a civil war.

     

    Activists have taken to the streets and posted remarks on a number of websites in recent weeks to vent their anger against politicians who they blame for causing the crisis.
