Hizbullah-led opposition groups rallied outside the Justice Ministry in the Lebanese capital on Saturday, as part of ongoing sit-ins and demonstrations against the US-backed government of Fuad Saniora. The gathering near the so-called Justice Palace drew several hundred people and came as Hizbullah vowed to intensify the street campaign to topple Saniora's embattled government. "We are not going to leave the street and we are not going to stop the sit-ins. We are going to intensify them," Hizbullah legislator Hussein Haj Hassan said in a televised interview Saturday.
