'Day of anger' called in Lebanon

Supporters of Saad Hariri hold protests as Hezbollah makes gains in getting its candidate chosen as PM.

    Supporters of Lebanon's caretaker prime minister, Saad Hariri, have called for a day of anger to protest against progress made by Hezbollah in forming a new government.

    During consultations on Monday, Hezbollah secured the support of a majority of parliamentarians to choose their candidate, Najib Mikati, as prime minister.

    Against this backdrop, the US has warned Lebanon's political leaders that a larger role for Hezbollah in the next cabinet could be "more problematic", and may affect US aid to the country.
