BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanon's prime minister, Saad al-Hariri, who resigned on Saturday while he was in Saudi Arabia, has left Riyadh for Abu Dhabi to hold talks with the United Arab Emirates Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, the Hariri-owned Future TV reported on Tuesday.

His sudden resignation has fueled speculation in Lebanon that he was coerced into quitting and has been held against his will, which Saudi Arabia has denied.
