US warns against inflaming tensions over Lebanon shooting

US warns against inflaming tensions over Lebanon shootingThe United States said on Wednesday the case of a deadly shooting in Lebanon should be handled in a way that achieves justice "without politically motivated inflammation" of tensions. Two aides of a government minister were killed in the June 30 shooting that has spawned a political conflict pitting Druze leader Walid Jumblatt against Christian and Druze adversaries who are aligned with the powerful Shi'ite group Hezbollah. As a result, Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri's national unity government, which includes the parties to the standoff, has been unable to convene, complicating government efforts to enact badly needed financial reforms.
