Beirut: Syrian Puppet Government Resigns


Naharnet is reporting that "Premier Omar Karami announced his resignation under fire from Parliament over his government's failure to prevent ex-Premier Hariri's assassination."

"I declare the resignation of the government that I had the honor to head. May God preserve Lebanon," Karami said according to wire reports.

Democracy "is now coming to our region," Druze leader Walid Jumblatt told Lebanese who were gathering Sunday for today's dramatic protests. "There is no going back."
