Tribunal to Open in Hariri Killing in Beirut





The memory of how a former prime minister of Lebanon, Rafik Hariri, died appears to have sobered those hoping to prosecute his assassins.

The Special Tribunal for Lebanon, which begins proceedings on Sunday in a leafy suburb near The Hague, has planted an impressive arsenal of security devices, with an extra focus on forestalling car bombs.

Mr. Hariri and 22 others were killed when a white van exploded near his motorcade in Beirut, the Lebanese capital, on Feb. 14, 2005.
