Hezbollah Calls for Pro-Syrian Rallies in Lebanon

Hezbollah calls for rallies in Beirut's Martyrs' Square to counter weeks of anti-Syrian protests in Lebanon. The militant Shiite Muslim group supports Syria's continued presence in Lebanon. Syria began Monday to pull its military back to the Bekaa Valley, which abuts the Syrian border.
