UN Prosecutor Files Indictment in Hariri Killing

The United Nations prosecutor investigating the killing of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri filed his indictment after tensions over the probe brought down the country’s government last week.

Daniel Bellemare sent the document yesterday to the pretrial judge, Daniel Fransen, without revealing who is being charged. The details will remain “confidential” until they are assessed, according to an e-mailed statement from the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, which was created in 2007 to probe the killing of Hariri by a roadside bomb two years earlier.
