Hezbollah ponders an uncertain future

Lebanese group at risk of losing one of its two closest allies as Syrian President Assad struggles to crush uprising.

    The effects of the crisis in Syria have reverberated across the region.

    In neighbouring Lebanon, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's future could play a large role in the Hezbollah party's support base.

    The group, which commands the loyalty of a big chunk of Lebanon's Shia Muslim population, now faces an uncertain future as it could potentially lose one of its two closest allies, the other being Iran.
