The struggle for power in Lebanon continues, with Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah giving a defiant speech yesterday, declaring his group will be around for "50 years more" in spite of increasing parliamentary opposition.

In his televised speech to 1700 Hezbollah students who graduated from a Hezbollah run university , Nasrallah also attacked the international tribunal saying it is designed to announce the verdicts that have already been made against certain suspects in the 2005 murder of former PM Rafik Hariri and related crimes.
