Suleiman asked Ahmadinejad to cancel southern Lebanon visit

Israel Radio is quoting a Kuwaiti newspaper report which claims that Lebanese President Michel Suleiman (sometimes spelled Sleiman) asked Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to cancel his visit to southern Lebanon last week, due to intelligence information that someone would attempt to assassinate Ahmadinejad. According to the report, Hezbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah insisted that the visit go ahead, in order to show that Hezbullah is in complete control of the southern part of the country. Ahmadinejad's arrival was delayed by two hours so that Hezbullah troops could go over Ahmadinejad's entire route with a fine tooth comb to ensure that there were no IED's.

Curiously, on Friday, Lebanese media reported that the IAF conducted mock air raids over parts of Lebanon.
