Hariri slaying trial postponed at UN-backed court

A judge at the UN-backed Special Tribunal for Lebanon has postponed the start of the landmark trial in absentia of four Hezbollah fighters charged in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

 

Judge Daniel Fransen says the proposed March 25 start date cannot go ahead because prosecutors have not yet disclosed all evidence to defense attorneys for the suspects. (AP)
