UN Hariri court seeks Beirut file





An international court in the Hague has asked Lebanon to hand over documents relating to the murder of the former Lebanese Prime Minister, Rafik Hariri.

The UN-backed tribunal also asked for a list of all suspects Lebanon is holding in connection with the 2005 killings.

The court has been set up to try those suspected of being behind the blast which killed Mr Hariri and 22 others.

The requests bring the tribunal closer to asking Lebanon to hand over four of the suspects within weeks.

Mr Hariri's allies have accused Syria of involvement in his death, a charge Damascus denies.
