Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora insisted Friday night that he refused to succumb to protests held by Hizbullah supporters earlier Friday calling for the US-backed premier to resign, during a conversation with French presidential candidate Segolene Royal, who was visiting in Lebanon as part of her Middle East tour. Some 800,000 protesters from Hizbullah and its pro-Syrian allies descended on downtown Beirut on Friday in a protest, which caused Saniora to be holed up in his office ringed by hundreds of police and combat troops.
