    Lebanon's Justice Minister Salim Jreissati says there will be no action taken on the resignation of Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri, until he returns from Saudi Arabia.

    Hariri has been meeting King Salman in Riyadh after announcing his resignation in the capital just two days earlier, citing Iran's meddling in Arab countries and fears of an assassination threat.

    Many fear Hariri's resignation could sow a political crisis in the country, where stability is fragile due to sectarian divisions.
