This article focuses on politics between Syria and Lebanon. Since the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, Lebanon's anti-Syrian opposition has demanded two things: the truth about Hariri's assassination and the resignation of President Emile Lahoud. Early in Nov. 2005, U.N. investigator Detlev Mehlis released a report on Hariri's death confirming that top Lebanese and Syrian officials plotted his death. Lahoud, however, remains in power.
