Lebanese PM 'to step down late Friday': Report
Embattled Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Siniora might resign on Friday after the opposition took full control of Beirut, Iranian Press TV reported.

Informed media sources told Press TV that Siniora might announce his resignation at 8:00 pm local time on Friday.

Meanwhile, gunmen affiliated to majority leader Saad Hariri's al-Mostaqbal (Future) Movement have moved to eastern parts of Beirut where they are planning to team up with Amin Gemayel's al-Katayeb and Samri Geagea's Lebanese Forces militiamen, according to the report.

In another development, fire broke out in the office of Future TV in al-Rawsha neighborhood.

A senior opposition official has reportedly announced that opposition supporters would end the clashes only if Siniora stepped down.
