The head of Lebanon's powerful Hezbollah movement on Friday said Saad Hariri, who resigned as Lebanese prime minister from Riyadh last week, was "detained" by Saudi Arabia.

"The head of the Lebanese government is detained in Saudi Arabia, he is banned from returning to Lebanon until now," Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised speech.
Nasrallah also accused Saudi Arabia of asking Israel to launch strikes on Lebanon.
"The most dangerous thing is inciting Israel to strike Lebanon," Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised address. "I'm talking about information that Saudi Arabia has asked Israel to strike Lebanon."
