Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal, speaking from Ankara on Wednesday, warned that Hizbullah's split from the Lebanese government could lead to a renewal of clashes between factions in Beirut.

Faisal was in Turkey meeting with Turkish counterpart Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, who offered support for Syrian and Saudi Arabian mediation for the crisis in Lebanon.

The Lebanese state-run National News Agency announced Wednesday that 11 ministers were stepping down from the 30-member Cabinet headed by Western-backed Saad Hariri, the slain prime minister's son.
