44

Lebanon formed a new government on Tuesday, the presidency announced after Shi鈥檌te Hezbollah and its allies clinched a deal on a cabinet that must tackle the country鈥檚 worst economic crisis in decades.



Heavily indebted Lebanon has been without effective government since Saad al-Hariri resigned as premier in October under pressure from protests against state corruption and waste – root causes of the crisis.
