There was a direct line linking assassinations in Lebanon and actions intended to topple the Lebanese government and the involvement of (Bashar) Assad's regime, US Presidnet George W. Bush was quoted by Israel Radio as saying Wednesday overnight. Earlier the United Nations Security Council unequivocally condemned the killing of Walid Eido, an anti-Syrian Lebanese parliamentarian. The UNSC statement did not name any countries in its statement which stated that "the Security Council condemns any attempt to destabilize Lebanon, including through political assassination or other terrorist acts." The official UNSC statement, however did not name any country as the likely power behind the killing. The Associated Press contributed to this report.
