'Al-Akhbar': Lebanese PM-designate to be asked to try and form gov't again

Lebanese President Michel Suleiman is expected to ask Sa'ad Hariri, head of the Western-backed parliamentary bloc, to try again to form the new government, the country's Akhbar newspaper reported Friday. Hariri abandoned efforts Thursday to form the government, throwing the country into more political uncertainty, after the Hizbullah-led parliament minority rejected his proposed cabinet.
