Probe: Truck bomb killed ex-Lebanon PM
A German prosecutor leading a U.N.-mandated probe into the February assassination of former Lebanon's Premier Rafik Hariri confirmed Friday that a truck bomb caused the huge blast that killed Hariri. Detlev Mehlis told a news conference that the explosion was "without any reasonable doubt above the ground."
Hariri and 20 others were killed when his motorcade was blown up on Feb. 14 in downtown Beirut. Some believed the explosives were hidden underneath the street.
