I was 3 blocks away when the bomb went off.
Even now, I can still hear and smell the scene.
UN tribunal investigating former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq al-Hariri’s killing lifts confidentiality restrictions.
The Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) has lifted confidentiality restrictions on an indictment issued in its investigation into the killing of Rafiq al-Hariri, the former Lebanese prime minister blown up by a car bomb in 2005.
Wednesday’s move means details of the case against four men named as suspects by the tribunal in June and subject to arrest warrants can be revealed for the first time. The UN-established tribunal said in a statement it had taken the step in order that the case could “proceed to trial”.
The four men named by the STL - Mustafa Amine Badreddine, Salim Jamil Ayyash, Hussein Hassan Oneissi and Assad Hassan Sabra - are all members of Hezbollah.
The documents describe a network of phones, which have been colour-coded to highlight their different functions, that are alleged to have been used by the suspects in co-ordinating the attack in which 21 other people also died.
