BEIRUT - The parliamentary bloc of Lebanon's Hezbollah group said on Thursday that a delay in forming a new government risked Lebanon sliding "towards tension."

"[The delay] has started to risk sliding towards tension ... and we warn of the dangers of this and very negative implications," the group said in a televised statement read out after the weekly meeting of its parliamentary bloc.

Lebanon held a general election on May 6 but rival parties have not yet agreed on the composition of a new cabinet.
