Saudi Arabia is compounding Arab pressure on Lebanese Prime Minister
Saad Hariri to reject an international tribunal investigating the
February 2005 assassination of his father, former Prime Minister Rafik
Hariri, sources told Haaretz.
The United Nations-backed tribunal is
expected to name Hezbollah, the Iranian- and Syrian-backed group with a
strong presence in Lebanon’s political establishment, as complicit in
the Valentine’s Day blast which killed Rafik Hariri as his convoy
travelled through Beirut.
