BEIRUT— Lebanon's caretaker prime minister said Monday he will take part in any government headed by a Hizbllah-backed candidate, raising the stakes in a crisis that many fear could descend into violence.

Sa'ad Hariri made the announcement as Lebanese President Michel Suleiman began two days of consultations with lawmakers over their choice of premier.
