Emile Lahoud president of Lebanon. In an interview with IPS, Lebanese President Emile Lahoud condemned the 4/26/07 killing and said that its aim was to create sectarian strife in Lebanon and was carried out after "conspirators and outside powers" previously failed to drive his country into an internal confrontation. "The recent killing is the same as what happened in 1975," Lahoud told IPS at the presidential palace in Beirut, "They want civil war here, but we won't allow it."
