Peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi arrived in Lebanon on Wednesday on the latest leg of his second regional tour aimed at finding a solution to the Syria conflict, an AFP reporter said.

"We are striving to stop the bloodbath in Syria," Brahimi's spokesman Ahmad Fawzi told reporters as the UN-Arab League envoy set off for talks with Lebanese leaders.

A government official said Brahimi would meet President Michel Sleiman, Prime Minister Najib Mikati and parliament Speaker Nabih Berri.
