     BEIRUT (AP) _ Lebanon's parliament speaker has moved to extend
the term of his legislature because elections cannot be held on
schedule, a sign of growing turmoil.

     The decision comes as Syria's civil war spreads into neighboring
Lebanon, heightening sectarian tensions in the deeply divided

     Lebanese politicians have been unable to agree on a law to
govern elections, originally set for June 16. They say the
worsening security situation has made elections impossible now.

     On Wednesday, parliament speaker Nabih Berri called for a Friday
session to vote on extending the 128-seat legislature's term.

     Lebanon is one of the few countries in the region to hold free
regular elections. Friday's extension would mark the first time
that parliament has had to extend its term since the nation's
1975-90 civil war.
