Former Lebanon PM: Hizbullah Weapons Are Root of Country's Problem

(Reuters-AP-Ha'aretz) Former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri said Tuesday that Hizbullah's possession of arms was at the root of conflict in Lebanon. Hizbullah, with its allies, toppled his government in January. Hariri said indictments issued by the UN-backed tribunal seeking the killers of his father accused four members of Hizbullah.

"There are people accused [in the killings] and they must be put on trial."
