Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt called Tuesday for preserving religious diversity in Tripoli, days after a historic library owned by a Greek Orthodox priest was attacked by unknown assailants in the northern city.Jumblatt also demanded an investigation into the attack, which raised sectarian tensions in the war-ravaged city. Srouj dismissed such rumors, while political and religious figures defended him and mobilized to prevent renewal of tensions in the city, which was rattled last year by off-and-on fierce clashes between supporters and opponents of Syrian President Bashar Assad, leaving several people dead.
