      Former Lebanese PM's Assassination Trial to Begin

      Four members of Hezbollah will go on trial in absentia on Thursday at a UN-backed tribunal for the 2005 killing of former Lebanese premier Rafiq Hariri, AFP reports.

      Nine years after a massive Beirut car bombing killed Hariri, leading to the exit of Syrian troops from Lebanon, and three years into Syria’s own bloody civil war, prosecutors are finally to open their case in a suburb of The Hague.
