Speaking from Qatar on Wednesday, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Hizbullah's move to topple the Lebanese government a "transparent effort by those forces inside Lebanon as well as interests outside Lebanon, to subvert justice and undermine Lebanon's stability and progress," speaking at a press conference, Reuters reported.

Addressing the Hariri tribunal, Clinton said that "Lebanon needs now to rally behind its own interests. The Lebanese people need to get beyond political party." Noting that Hizbullah quit the government in anticipation of indictments scheduled to be handed down in the tribunal, she added, "It's not political parties that would be put on trial, it's individuals," according to the report.
