Hizbullah was defeated in Sunday's parliamentary elections in Lebanon, according to sources quoted in a Reuters report. The report quoted Interior Minister Ziad Baroud as saying official results would be announced in the coming hours. The race for the 128-member parliament will have repercussions beyond this tiny Arab country's borders. A win for the alliance headed by Hizbullah, could bring international isolation and possibly a new conflict with Israel. It could also set back US Mideast policy and boost the influence of Hizbullah's backers, Syria and Iran.
