Lebanon's Hariri demands 'justice' for slain father

Netherlands Lebanon's incoming prime minister called for"justice" but not revenge on Monday as the trial of four Hezbollah suspects over the assassination of his father Rafiq Hariri in 2005 entered its final stretch. Saad Hariri was in court in The Netherlands to hear the first day of closing arguments at the UN-backed tribunal into the"horror" suicide blast that changed the face of the Middle East. Prosecutors said Rafiq Hariri, a billionaire Sunni former premier, was targeted by the Shiite militant group Hezbollah because he opposed Syria's control over Lebanon. (AFP)
