Lebanon's US-backed government on Saturday approved the creation of an international tribunal to try suspects in the assassination of a former prime minister despite objections by Hizbullah and the country's pro-Syrian president. Though widely expected, the government's approval was bound to further deepen the country's political crisis and spark mass street demonstrations threatened by Syrian-backed Hezbollah and its allies to topple the government of Prime Minister Fuad Saniora.

Damascus has denied having any role in the killing.
