Lebanese parliamentarians failed on Monday in their sixth attempt to elect a new president, extending the political vacuum that emerged when former President Michel Suleiman's term ended two weeks ago.

The deadlock comes as the spillover from neighboring Syria's civil war has deepened Lebanon's own longstanding divisions.

Politicians from the March 8 coalition, which supports Syrian President Bashar Assad, boycotted Monday's parliamentary session, depriving it of a quorum.
