Lebanon group denies Syria unrest role

Party led by ex-PM Saad Hariri rejects accusations they are sponsoring protests.

    Syria has accused Salafists and a group linked to Lebanon's former prime minister Saad Hariri of supporting anti-government groups in the country.

    The government has said the unrest in Syria is a foreign conspiracy, and has accused certain Lebanese politicians of stirring up the unrest by providing weapons and money to protesters.

    But members of the Future Movement who have been blamed say the allegations are nonsense.
