US President George W. Bush met Thursday with former Lebanese president Amin Gemayel. "We'll be demonstrating US commitment to a sovereign and democratic Lebanon, and express sympathy, again, on behalf of the president and the American people for the assassination of Mr. Gemayel's son, Pierre Gemayel," White House press secretary Tony Snow said prior to the meeting. Amin Gemayel said in an interview broadcast Sunday he did not know who was responsible for the killing of his son, the country's industry minister, who was assassinated in November. But he accused Syria of plotting a coup d'etat against the government of Prime Minister Fuad Saniora.
