MP in Hariri's party: Hariri says Saudi not holding him, his family

BEIRUT (Reuters) - A member of the political party of Saad al-Hariri, who resigned from his post as Lebanon’s prime minister on Nov. 4 from Saudi Arabia, denied Lebanese President Michel Aoun’s claim on Wednesday that Riyadh was holding both Hariri and his family.

Okab Sakr, a Shi‘ite politician close to Hariri and a member of parliament for his political party, told Reuters he had spoken to Hariri on Wednesday.
