Another Lebanese Prime Minister Disappears

Hariri and Salman on November 6

Al Jazeera
Saudi, UAE, Kuwait urge citizens to leave Lebanon
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait have advised their citizens not to travel to Lebanon and urged those who are in the country to leave as soon as possible.


Lebanon has been on edge after the sudden resignation of Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri, who announced his departure while on a visit to Saudi Arabia on Saturday.

His whereabouts have since been unknown. However, officials told Al Jazeera on Thursday that Hariri may be under house arrest or temporarily detained in the Saudi capital of Riyadh.

Lebanon's Future Movement party, which is headed by Hariri, demanded on Thursday that the prime minister returns from the kingdom immediately in its sharpest statement yet over his leave of absence.

"The return of the Lebanese prime minister, the national leader, Saad al-Hariri, and the head of the Future Movement, is necessary to restore the dignity and respect to Lebanon at home and abroad," said a former prime minister, Fouad Siniora, in a statement read on

Al Jazeera's correspondent in Lebanon said that the country's President, Michel Aoun, would soon call for assistance from the international community, the Arab League, the United States, the United Kingdom, China and Russia - to help uncover the reason behind Hariri's unexpected resignation...

 I believe Mr. Trump has already told his Saudi lords that he would hurry up the first $100 billion of weapons. Maybe he should hurry up the rest; after all, there are some Yemeni children still alive.

Today it was reported that Saudi Arabia appointed 30 new judges.

Must be a whole bunch of show trials coming up.

Prince Ibn Fahd, the second Saudi prince reported killed, has been said to be alive and well according to Saudi officials. They could not get him to appear on camera, however.
