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

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.

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.
