Speaker Nabih Berri broke his silence Saturday after being the alleged target of an assassination plot, saying Lebanese politicians must quickly elect a new president and revitalize the work of the government along with heightened security measures to face the threat of terrorism.The speaker's remarks come a day after Interior Minister Nouhad Machnouk said Berri was likely a target of an assassination plot, which would have taken place at a UNESCO conference for mukhtars in Beirut.Around 11:30 a.m. Friday morning, a suicide bomber attacked a police checkpoint in east Lebanon, killing an officer and wounding 32 other people.Speaking to As-Safir, Machnouk echoed the speaker, urging politicians to come together to face the terror threat in Lebanon.
