Deal cooking between Saudi Arabia and Iran

"Saudi Arabia and Iran, backers of the main rivals in Lebanon's political crisis, are negotiating a deal to end the standoff that has threatened to erupt into violence, Lebanese political sources said on Wednesday.

"The regional discussions took place on eve of an international aid conference in Paris expected to provide embattled Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora with political backing and billions of dollars in aid and soft loans."
