The [UN]Special Tribunal for Lebanon has issued indictments against four senior Hezbullah members in the 2005 murder of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik al-Hariri.

I will now examine the indictment and the warrants to take the appropriate measures, [State Prosecutor Saeed] Mirza told reporters following a meeting with a three-member delegation from the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL).

A judicial source told The Daily Star that the indictment identified the suspects as Mustafa Badreddine[Badreddine is cousin and a brother-in-law of slain Hezbollah terrorist Imad Mughniyeh..ed], Salim al-Ayyash, Hasan Aineysseh and Asad Sabra.

Will Hezbollah led government allow these prosecutions to go through?:


Also Thursday, Lebanon's interior minister was quoted as saying that the indictments are "a big deal."

Why the big deal? Its just an indictment and not a final verdict. So why all this hubbub? Lebanese Interior Minister Marwan Charbel asked during a Voice of Lebanon interview, according to The Daily Star.

Hell, those four probably have their bags packed and on their way to Iran
