Former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri says he is now ready to share power with his rivals Hezbollah if that's what it takes to help Lebanon finally form a government after nine months of political deadlock.It also presents a personal challenge for the son of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, whose 2005 car bomb assassination was widely blamed on Hezbollah, which denies the allegation.Lebanon, still struggling to recover from its own 1975-90 Civil War, has been without a fully functioning government since Prime Minister Najib Mikati resigned last March.In the past two years, two prominent figures linked to Hariri's Future Party have been killed in car bombs many Hariri supporters blamed on Hezbollah, which denies the accusation.Hariri's government was toppled by Hezbollah's political bloc in 2011 and he soon left the country.
