Video report: Hariri trial opens in The Hague

Hezbollah members were officially charged with Hariri’s assassination

Published: Updated:

Four Hezbollah members were charged on Thursday in The Hague with the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri and 22 others in a truck bomb attack nearly nine years ago.

Prosecutor Norman Farrell told the Special Tribunal for Lebanon that the evidence in the case included large amounts of data from mobile phones allegedly used by the Hezbollah suspects to plan and execute the bombing, which turned a street of Beirut “into a man-made hell.”
