Eleventh minister resigns, toppling Lebanon government

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanese minister Adnan Sayyed Hussein resigned on Wednesday, the state news agency said, bringing to 11 the number of ministerial resignations and effectively collapsing the government of Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri.

Hussein’s move followed the resignation of 10 ministers from Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement and its political allies, who called on President Michel Suleiman to form a new government.
