Lebanon political crisis: Politicians fail to form govt before Macron's deadline

Leading Lebanese politician Walid Jumblatt said on Wednesday it seemed some people did not understand that French-led efforts to lift Lebanon out of crisis were the last chance to save the country. France has been leaning on its fractious politicians to set up a new government to start reforming the corruption-ridden state, but a Tuesday's deadline that they had agreed with Paris for establishing the new cabinet has already been missed.
