Hariri Breaks Leg while Skiing in French Alps 

Former Saad Hariri broke his left leg while skiing in the French Alps, said his press office in a statement on Saturday.

He underwent a successful three-hour surgery in the American Hospital of Paris.

The former premier will remain in hospital for several days for recuperation.

Hariri and his family were spending the holidays in the French Alps.

Prime Minister Najib Miqati later telephoned Hariri's family to inquire about his health and wish him a speedy recovery.

As Safir newspaper reported in Saturday that the Mustaqbal Movement is expected to hold a political festival at Biel in downtown Beirut on February 14 to commemorate the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

Former Premier Saad Hariri is therefore expected to return to Lebanon before mid-February in order to attend the event, revealed a prominent Mustaqbal parliamentary source to the newspaper.

Preparations will also be taken in order to stage a popular and political rally to commemorate the March 14 demonstration that was held in 2005.

Former PM Saad Hariri left Lebanon in April a few months after his government was overthrown in January.

He has since taken to the social networking site Twitter to keep in touch with supporters.

He confirmed via Twitter on January 14 that he will be returning to Lebanon soon.
