Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati offered to resign

President Michel Suleiman, however, asked him to stay on for a “period of time.”

March 14 bloc, Lebanon’s opposition, called for the government to resign after a bomb attack in Beirut on Friday killed a prominent Lebanese intelligence official opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Sunni Muslim gunmen blocked roads with burning tyres in Beirut and other cities on Saturday to protest against the assassination of Brigadier-General Wissam al-Hassan.
