The leader of the anti-Syrian majority in Lebanon's parliament on Tuesday called on Russia and China to use their influence to stop disruptive elements from interfering in his country's upcoming presidential election. Saad Hariri, the son of slain former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, also urged the UN to take stronger action against those responsible for a recent string of assassinations in Lebanon targeting anti-Syrian lawmakers and other figures. "What's happening today in Lebanon is a destabilizing coup," Hariri told reporters at UN headquarters in New York, flanked by several bodyguards. "When you have members of parliament sitting in a building to protect themselves from an assassination that might happen ... I think this is not acceptable for the international community. I think the international community should move on those who committed these crimes in a very swift way," he added.
