Lebanon's Hezbollah declines to return to government meetings - Al Mayadeen TV

Lebanon's Hezbollah group has spurned an Arab League suggestion that ministers affiliated to it and the Shi'ite Amal Movement return to government meetings, Al Mayadeen TV said on Monday.

Hezbollah is part of the Lebanese government but has been boycotting meetings in a dispute over the judge in the investigation into last year's Beirut port explosion.

Arab League official Hossam Zaki, who is visiting Beirut, had suggested that Hezbollah return. The movement declined to do so, Al Mayadeen said.
