Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri's return to Lebanon is aimed at reinforcing moderation within the Sunni community, which felt largely marginalized by Hezbollah's political and security upper hand in the country, according to a Future Movement official.Hariri, political heir of his father, slain Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, returned to Lebanon Friday morning after more than three years in self-exile.The former premier's return comes two days after Saudi Arabia announced a $1 billion donation to help Lebanon fight terrorism, following five days of clashes between the Army and Syrian rebels in Arsal in which 17 soldiers, 42 civilians and at least 60 militants have been killed.
