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.
