U.N.: 'Proof' on Hariri's Death 'Incomplete'

U.N. prosecutor Daniel Bellemare said the 'proof' handed over by Hezbollah chief Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah implicating Israel in the death of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri is "incomplete."

Bellemare said the dossier of six DVDs was the same material Nasrallah presented at a press conference two weeks ago.

The U.N. special prosecutor urged Nasrallah to hand over the rest of the evidence he claimed to have.

"I welcome any evidence that can bring us closer to the truth, but nobody can influence the direction [of the investigation]," Bellemare said.

Two weeks ago, Nasrallah held a press conference to present evidence he said proved that Israel was behind the massive bombing that killed Hariri and 22 others in Beirut in May 2005.

The Special Tribunal for Lebanon, set up in a suburb of The Hague in 2007 by the U.N. Security Council, is expected to issue indictments against senior Hezbollah members in the near future.
