Hezbollah member found guilty over killing of Rafik HaririAugust 18, 2020
Verdict on 2005 assassination of former Lebanese PM exonerates two other members
A senior member of the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah has been convicted for helping orchestrate the 2005 assassination of the country’s former prime minister Rafik Hariri, after a five-year international trial in the Hague.
The judges exonerated two other members of the organisation and ruled they had found no links to Hezbollah’s leadership. The verdicts were met with surprise in Beirut, where supporters of Hezbollah were expecting all three named members to be convicted.
