World IN BRIEF : LEBANON : Warlord Assails New Government

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A leading Christian warlord said the newly formed government is incapable of ending Lebanon’s civil war because of its strong tilt toward Syria. Rightist warlord Samir Geagea, commander of the mainly Maronite Catholic Lebanese Forces, the Christians’ main militia, also appealed for urgent Arab League intervention to rescue a peace plan it brokered to reconcile Lebanon’s warring factions. “This is an imbalanced government which cannot possibly reconcile the main antagonists of the civil war,” Geagea said.
