Lebanese civilians close to the border with Syria told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday that weapons for Hizbullah were being brought in by the truckload at night. Lebanese Army troops on duty at the border refused to confirm the claims.
This correspondent watched as a line of trucks and lorries several kilometers long built up at one crossing on the road from Lebanon into Syria.

But in the late afternoon wintry chill they were stationary; their drivers had disappeared and only the occasional soldier kept guard every few hundred meters.
BEIRUT, Nov 13 (Reuters) - Lebanon's political crisis deepened on Monday as a depleted cabinet approved draft U.N. statutes for a tribunal to try the killers of ex-premier Rafik al-Hariri despite the resignation of six pro-Syrian ministers.
