Hezbollah ‘not concerned’ with verdict of U.N.-backed tribunal


Beirut (Reuters) – Hezbollah’s leader said on Friday the group was not concerned with the verdict of a U.N.-backed tribunal over the 2005 assassination of ex-PM Rafik al-Hariri due on August 18.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said if any members of the Iran-backed movement are indicted, Hezbollah would stand by their innocence.

The court located outside The Hague, Netherlands, was due to give a verdict in the trial of four men on August 7 but it was postponed after the massive blast that rocked Beirut last week.
