Germany called for a halt to the "spiral of violence" in the Middle East and urged its citizens in Lebanon to lie low. Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Saniora agreed in a telephone conversation on Saturday to push for a return to calm, Steinmeier's ministry said.
