BEIRUT - Lebanese President Michel Aoun said on Wednesday Saudi Arabia was also holding the family of Saad al-Hariri, who resigned from his post as Lebanon's prime minister on November 4 from Riyadh and has yet to return to Lebanon.

"We have not previously asked for their return, but we have confirmed that (his family) is also detained and family members are being searched as they enter and leave the house," Aoun said in a statement.
