Hezbollah tells Lebanese to boycott Hariri court


The head of Hezbollah has urged all Lebanese citizens to boycott a UN-backed inquiry into the killing of former prime minister Rafik al-Hariri.

Speaking via video link, Hassan Nasrallah also claimed the investigators are sending information to Israel.

Fresh turmoil is feared in Lebanon amid reports the court is preparing to indict members of the Shi’ite militant group over Hariri’s murder in a bomb attack.

Hezbollah has denounced the tribunal probing his assassination in 2005 as a tool of American and Israeli policy. Amid growing tension, the court has insisted it will not be deterred in its inquiry.
