Lebanon: Interpol issues alerts in Hariri case

A senior Lebanese security official says Interpol has issued international alerts against four Hezbollah men indicted in the 2005 assassination of Lebanon`s former prime minister Rafik Hariri.

Beirut: A senior Lebanese security official says Interpol has issued international alerts against four Hezbollah men indicted in the 2005 assassination of Lebanon`s former prime minister Rafik Hariri.

The official, who requested anonymity citing regulations, says the red notices were issued on Saturday at the request of the Netherlands-based Special Tribunal for Lebanon.

The Iranian-backed Shiite guerrilla group denies the men`s involvement and says they wont be handed over.

Hezbollah dominates Lebanon`s government and has thousands of guerrilla fighters, making it unlikely that authorities will be willing — or able — detain the men.
Officials at the tribunal and the Interpol could not be immediately reached for comment.
