BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – Lebanese President Michel ‘Aoun stated on Wednesday that his government considers former Prime Minister Saad Hariri detained in Saudi Arabia because he hasn’t returned in 12 days.

‘Aoun added that Hariri’s detainment is a violation of the Vienna Convention and an act of aggression towards Lebanon.

Saad Hariri recently tweeted he is returning to Lebanon in two days after an Iranian official also accused Saudi Arabia of holding him against his will.

Hariri maintains he is simply a guest in Saudi Arabia and that he is not under any kind of arrest.

Hariri was PM, he could have voiced his fears and requested security detail in Lebanon before he departed for Saudi Arabia. I suspect he and his family are held hostage in Saudi Arabia and he is occasionally allowed to appear on their media as a puppet. This is a warning to all Lebanese politicians from any part of sectarian divide
