Nasrallah: Iranian money helped rebuild Lebanon after war

Money that Hizbullah received from Iran helped rebuild Lebanese houses destroyed by Israel in the Second Lebanon War according to Hizbullah Chief Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, who spoke Saturday ahead of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's visit to Lebanon.
"Hizbullah does not trust Lebanese government bureaucracy, therefore the Iranians paid in cash," Nasrallah said in a televised broadcast.
Nasrallah hailed the expected visit of Ahmadinejad and said "the Iranian president is arriving as a guest of Lebanon, and he was invited by Lebanese President Michel Suleiman himself.
"The recent reports that Ahmadinejad intended to visit the Lebanon-Israel border in order to throw stones across were ridiculous," Nasrallah continued.
