Hezbollah, Amal Claim Clean Sweep in Lebanon Vote


Officials from Lebanon's Hezbollah and Amal movements say they have won all 23 parliamentary seats contested in Sunday's second stage of Lebanon's staggered elections.

The officials say preliminary results from the Southern Lebanon give the pro-Syrian movements a clean sweep.

Last Sunday, an anti-Syrian slate headed by Saad Hariri, the son of assassinated former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, swept to victory in Sunni-dominated Beirut.

The four stage vote by region comes four months after Rafik Hariri's assassination, which triggered massive Lebanese opposition protests and forced the Beirut government to quit. Syrian troops were also forced out of the country after a 29-year presence.

Since then, Washington and the United Nations have renewed calls for anti-Israeli Hezbollah militants to disarm. Hezbollah says it has no intention of doing so.
