Hezbollah official hints at group's involvement in Hariri murder

A senior Hezbollah official on Wednesday hinted at the militant group's involvement in the 2005 assassination of Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, the first indication of the sort expressed by a member of the organization.
"Even if the organization did murder Hariri, that's no reason to destroy Lebanon," the London-based daily A-Sharq al-Awsat quoted Lebanese MP Walid Sakaria as saying.
An investigation by the Canadian broadcaster CBC released Sunday found Hezbollah to have been directly involved in the assassination and some of its members are likely to be indicted.
The militant Shiite group has said it will not accept any accusation against any of its members, and warned of the repercussions of such an outcome.
