Suspected killers of Hariri revealed
Saturday 30 July 2011
The UN-backed Lebanon tribunal yesterday released the names, photographs and details of four men wanted for killing statesman Rafik al-Hariri, saying it acted in an effort to bring about their arrest.
Lebanon received the indictments and four arrest warrants from the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) last month. While the suspects were not named then, Lebanese officials said the accused were members of the Shi'ite militant movement Hezbollah.
Hezbollah accuses the tribunal of being a tool of the United States and Israel and denies any link to the 2005 assassination.
The suspects named were Mustafa Amine Badreddine, a senior Hezbollah figure and brother-in-law of slain commander Imad Moughniyeh, as well as Salim Jamil Ayyash, Hussein Hassan Oneissi and Assad Hassan Sabra.
