DUBAI (Reuters) – Lebanon’s Christian Maronite Patriarch Bechara Boutros Al-Rai met on Tuesday in Saudi Arabia with Saad al-Hariri, who announced his resignation as Lebanon’s prime minister from Riyadh on Nov. 4, according to Saudi-owned al-Arabiya TV. Hariri abruptly announced his resignation in a television broadcast, saying he believed there was an assassination plot against him and accusing Saudi Arabia’s arch-foe Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah of sowing strife in the Arab world. Patriarch Beshara al-Rai is making an historic first visit to Saudi Arabia.
