Hizbullah chief on Thursday said his movement will not accept any accusations against its members over the assassination of Lebanon's former premier. "Whoever thinks the resistance could possibly accept any accusation against any of its jihadists or leaders is mistaken -- no matter the pressures and threats," Hassan Nasrallah said in a speech.
 
Rafiq Hariri was killed alongside more than 20 other people in a massive car bomb blast in Beirut on February 14, 2005.
 
The Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) is expected to announce its findings by the end of 2010. "Whoever thinks that we will allow the arrest or detention of any of our jihadists is mistaken," AFP quoted him as saying, adding that his political rivals are "in a hurry to see an indictment." in the five-year-old case.
 
Nasrallah also warned that the court had led Beirut to a "sensitive place," saying it was aimed at inciting division in the country.
