Three released in Hariri inquiry





Three suspects, held over the assassination of Lebanon's former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, have been freed.

The three are all civilians, two of them Lebanese and one Syrian. Four Lebanese generals remain in custody.

The three had been held on suspicion of withholding information and misleading the assassination inquiry.

Their release comes before the start on Sunday of a UN special tribunal in the Hague which is due to try suspects in the case.
