Lebanon’s Hariri makes rare visit to Beirut

Former Lebanese prime minister Saad al-Hariri made a rare visit to Lebanon on Sunday, arriving in Beirut on the 11th anniversary of the assassination of his father, Rafik al-Hariri, an airport official said. It is only his third visit to the country since he left in 2011 after his government was toppled by the March 8 coalition that includes the powerful Shi’ite group Hezbollah. Hariri is Lebanon’s most influential Sunni politician and is backed by Saudi Arabia.
