The US has said it is backing Lebanese efforts to form a new coalition amid rising tension sparked by the killing of security chief Wissam al-Hassan.

US state department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland warned a power vacuum would pose a great risk to stability.

She said the export of instability from Syria threatens the security of Lebanon now more than ever.

Deadly clashes erupted in Beirut and Tripoli after opposition figures blamed Syria for the attack on General Hassan.
