Arab League declares Hezbollah terror group

Arab League foreign ministers on Friday declared Lebanon’s Shi’ite movement Hezbollah a “terrorist” group, after Sunni-dominated Gulf monarchies adopted the same stance. Nearly all members of the pan-Arab body supported the decision, but not Lebanon and Iraq, which expressed “reservations”, the bloc said in a statement read out at a news conference by Bahraini diplomat Wahid Mubarak Sayar.
