Lebanese president reappoints Fuad Saniora prime minister

Lebanon's new president has asked outgoing Prime Minister Fuad Saniora to form a new Cabinet despite reservations by the Hizbullah-led opposition. President Michel Suleiman reappointed Saniora following a decision late Tuesday by the parliamentary majority to back him. However the opposition said it was against Saniora's reappointment, calling him unacceptable and a hindrance to national reconciliation. Feuding factions agreed to form a national unity government under an Arab League-brokered deal that resolved a prolonged political crisis.
