A TV station owned by Lebanon's top Sunni leader is back on air after suspending transmission when Shi'ite Hizbullah supporters pushed their pro-government opponents out of most of west Beirut. Future TV is owned by Saad Hariri, the parliamentary majority leader and son of assassinated former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. The station's chief editor, Nadim Mounla, says Future TV was determined to resume broadcasting despite receiving "threats." Last week, he said Hizbullah threatened to destroy the station's offices. Mounla says Hariri's Al Mustaqbal newspaper will also resume publication Wednesday, four days after its offices were ransacked and burned.
