The United States accused Syria, Iran and Hezbollah of plotting to topple Lebanon’s government. “Support for a sovereign, democratic, and prosperous Lebanon is a key element of U.S. policy in the Middle East,” a White House statement said Wednesday.

Hezbollah is demanding a new government in Lebanon. The militant group threatened to force early elections with street protests and the resignation of its two Cabinet ministers if its demands are not met.
