Lebanon crisis is effort to subvert justice: Clinton

DOHA (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Lebanon’s coalition crisis on Wednesday was a transparent attempt to subvert justice but vowed that the work of the U.N.-backed special tribunal would continue.

“”We view what happened today as a transparent effort by those forces inside Lebanon as well as interests outside Lebanon to subvert justice and undermine Lebanon’s stability and progress,” Clinton told a news conference in Doha, Qatar, where she is attending a meeting of regional leaders.
