#AceWorldNews says nearly nine years after a truck bomb killed former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and 22 others, the trial is starting of four Hezbollah members suspected of organizing his assassination. The Special Tribunal for Lebanon in The Hague is trying the suspects for plotting the assassination in their absence, AP reported. Lebanon’s influential Shiite militia Hezbollah has vowed never to arrest the suspects. The suicide assassination with a ton of explosives on February 14, 2005, fueled sectarian divisions between Sunni and Shiite Muslims.
