Saudi Arabia on Sunday donated $50 million to Lebanon in response to a plea for help made by Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora, a Saudi official said. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media, said King Abdullah ordered a fund transfer immediately. The aid was aimed at "providing urgent relief to lessen the suffering of the Lebanese people in these difficult times," the official said. A Saudi official said the kingdom was talking with other countries about how to stop the violence between Israel and Hizbullah. "The Israeli leadership knows that destroying the Lebanese economy and terrorizing the Lebanese people will not serve its security, stability or future in the region," the official said on condition of anonymity.
