FILES-LEBANON-POLITICS-HEZBOLLAH

(FILES) This file photo taken on October 12, 2016 shows Members of Lebanon's Shiite movement Hezbollah parading during Ashura commemorations in a southern Beirut suburb with Arabic writing in the backround which reads: "Hezbollah are the winners". Lebanon's Shiite movement, blamed by Saad Hariri for his shock resignation as premier, has grown over the three decades since its founding into a mighty army used by Iran to project regional influence. From Lebanon to Syria, Yemen, and Iraq, Hezbollah has matured into Iran's most useful "tool" -- thereby drawing the ire of Tehran's regional rival Riyadh, analysts say. / AFP PHOTO / ANWAR AMROANWAR AMRO/AFP/Getty Images ** OUTS - ELSENT, FPG, CM - OUTS * NM, PH, VA if sourced by CT, LA or MoD **
