Clinton warns Nasrallah

"... Clinton's remarks came in an interview with Lebanon's An-Nahar newspaper, published on Friday. It followed a threat by Hezbollah's leader Hassan Nasrallah who on Thursday said his group will "cut the hand" of anyone who tries to arrest its members for the 2005 assassination of Rafik Hariri.... "Hezbollah should know that resorting once again to violence in Lebanon runs completely counter to the interests of the Lebanese people, the interests of the region, and of the United States ... They should also know that if the goal of violence is to stop the tribunal, it won't work ... The problem in Lebanon is not the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. The problem is that some are threatening violence in order to try to stop justice ...Syria's behaviour "has not met our hopes and expectations ... Syria's actions have not met its international obligations. Syria can still choose another path and we hope that it does," Clinton said."
