LEIDSCHENDAM: A UN-backed tribunal began handing down its long-awaited verdict Tuesday on the 2005 murder of Lebanon’s former premier Rafic Hariri, opening with a minute’s silence for victims of a huge explosion that devastated Beirut two weeks ago.
Four alleged members of the powerful Shiite Muslim group Hezbollah are on trial in absentia at the court in the Netherlands over a suicide bombing in the Lebanese capital 15 years ago that killed Sunni billionaire Hariri and 21 other people.
