BEIRUT: U.N. envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi arrives in Beirut Wednesday morning for talks with the top three Lebanese officials on the unrest in Syria, a security source told The Daily Star.

Brahimi will leave later in the evening.

Brahimi, who served as the Arab League Special Envoy for Lebanon in the final stages of the 1975-90 Civil War, has proposed a truce in Syria for the four-day Eid al-Adha holiday to pave the way for a political process.

Brahimi traveled across the region this week to garner support for his proposal.
