Hezbollah Gains in Lebanon, Syria Talks Peace with Israel

Hosted by

Lebanon's fractious leaders are so unpopular that when they left Friday for negotiations in Qatar, a song called The Leaders Left Lebanon became an instant hit on music TV. But the country's 18-month old political crisis may be over after its beleaguered leaders came home with an agreement to politically legitimize Hezbollah. Meantime, Israel and Syria have confirmed they're trying to resolve their differences in talks moderated by Turkey. Andrews Lee Butters is in Beirut for Time magazine.
