BERLIN - Germany has no evidence that Saad Hariri is being held against his will by Saudi Arabia and believes that the Lebanese prime minister who resigned last week enjoys freedom of movement, a Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said on Friday.

"We have no evidence that Hariri is being detained in Riyadh and we assume that he chooses where he goes," the spokeswoman said during a regular government news conference.

A government spokesman said Germany shared Saudi Arabia's concerns about Iran's interference in Yemen and its support for Syrian President Bashar Assad and the Lebanese group Hezbollah.
