French President Francois Hollande attends a press a conference with Lebanese President Michel Suleiman, unseen, at the Presidential Palace in Baabda, east of Beirut, Lebanon, Sunday, Nov. 4, 2012. Hollande said France will stand against instability in Lebanon. Hollande’s comments during a short visit to Beirut come as many in Lebanon fear that Syria's civil war could spill over. Speaking to reporters after meeting President Michel Suleiman, Hollande said that amid Syria’s civil war, “we are committed to give you guarantees regarding security, stability and the unity of Lebanon.” A top anti-Syrian intelligence chief was killed in a car bomb in Beirut last month. The assassination stirred up deadly sectarian tensions in Lebanon, where Sunnis and Shiites are deeply divided over the Syrian civil war, raising the specter of renewed sectarian fighting.
