Forget Syria--Hezbollah May Be Indicted For Assassination Of Former Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri

After years of dawdling in the investigation into the role Syria played in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, now it turns out that members of the terrorist organization Hezbollah may be indicted.

As if there is a difference:
The leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah militant group said Thursday that its members will be among those indicted in the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri - a move he dismissed as politically motivated.


Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised speech that the current prime minister, Saad Hariri, informed him of the upcoming indictments by an international tribunal investigating the suicide truck bombing, which killed Hariri and 22 others.

Many in Lebanon worry that if the tribunal accuses the Shiite Hezbollah of being connected to the assassination of Hariri, it could lead to bloodshed between Lebanon's Shiite and Sunni communities. Hariri was Sunni.
It is still not known when the indictment will actually be ready or who will be charged but according to the caption to a photo on the page, quoting the AP:
Hassan Nasrallah said Thursday in a nationally televised speech that the current prime minister, Saad Hariri, told him that "undisciplined" Hezbollah members will be among those indicted.
Nasrallah is naturally opposed to the indictments:
I don't agree with charging any Hezbollah members. They want to take us into a tunnel.
Let's hope there is no light on the other side for Hezbollah.
