This morning we are heartbroken to report that Anthony Shadid of our partner The New York Times is no longer one of the survivors. The veteran Middle East correspondent for The Times, Washington Post and Boston Globe and long time voice on this program has died.

Over the past ten months, Syrian Security Forces have killed more than 5,000 protestors across the country. But this weekend, two key voices announced their calls to action: the Arab League will seek U.N. Security Council approval to peacefully end the rule of President Bashar al-Assad, and Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer introduced a bill that would block financial aid and create trade sanctions against Syrian leaders involved in the crackdown.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in Berlin attending NATO meetings, where members of the alliance are debating whether to step up their attacks on Libyan forces. Meanwhile, Libyan rebels are warning of an immanent blood bath in the city of Misurata if NATO does not intensify their air attacks. Thursday, Col. Moammar Gaddhafi rode around around Tripoli in a convertible, defiantly waving his fists at the allied forces. What is the way forward for NATO and is its latest combat mission a reflection of how little it can do to with such a divided force?

The Lebanese government has collapsed following the resignation of eleven ministers from Hezbollah and its allies. Their resignation from the government came in the midst of a dispute over a U.N. tribunal, which has found ties between the 2005 assassination of former prime minister, Rafik Hariri, and Hezbollah.

Hezbollah and its allies have threatened to withdraw from Lebanon’s government today, deepening a crisis resulting from the assassination of former prime minister, Rafik Hariri. The U.N backed investigation is expected to name members of Hezbollah in his killing. A withdrawal from the Lebanese cabinet would cause the government to dissolve and the threat already sent negative ripples through the investment climate in that country. Middle East correspondent for the Los Angeles Times Borzou Daragahi reports from Beirut.
