BEIRUT: President Michel Sleiman condemned the assassination attempt on MP Butros Harb Friday and the means used to destabilize the country.

According to Sleiman's press office, the president met with Harb at Baabda Palace and affirmed that he has ordered security and judicial authorities to uncover the circumstances and perpetrators behind the incident.
