Talks among Lebanon's feuding political groups on the formation of a national unity government that were scheduled to start Monday have been postponed for one week, Lebanon's parliament speaker announced Sunday. In a statement issued by his office, Speaker Nabih Berri said he was postponing the talks until November 6 to give more time for discussions on the agenda and because some of the leaders involved had "prior engagements." Berri, a Hizbullah ally, had invited leaders from Lebanon's bickering political groups - pro- and anti-Syrian, Christian and Muslim - to hold talks on October 30 to discuss forming a national unity government and a new election law to prevent political tension from degenerating into street clashes between rival camps.
