Mughniyeh In-Law a Hariri Suspect

Four members of Lebanese Shi'ite terror group Hizbullah have been indicted for the 2005 car-bomb death of former Lebanse Prime Minister Rafiq Al-Hariri by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) according to Lebanese television reports on Thursday. Two of them were named as Salim Iyash and Mustapha Badr Ad-Din, a senior Hizbullah official who was the brother-in-law of senior Hizbullah terrorist Imad Mughniyeh, who was eliminated in a 2008 car bombing in Damascus.

Further disclosures are expected soon. Agence France Presse reported that if Lebanon does not arrest the suspects, the STL will publicize the indictments.
