t's apparently only in the German version (I can't find it in the English), but Der Spiegel is reporting that the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) is looking into connections between Iran and the four Hezbullah members STL has accused of murdering former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik al-Hariri.
The four men named in the indictment issued by the STL are members of Hizbullah and the tribunal is “following evidence that lead to Iran.”
The magazine said that the four suspects traveled to Iran in 2004 and during their stay, they went through military training in “Khomeini’s training camp” near the city of Qom.
It added: “The training supervisors built sets similar to the crime scene” of Hariri’s murder.
Der Spiegel said that “al-Quds brigades” that is considered the revolutionary guards right hand, supervised the entire operation.
“Syrian intelligence officials also participated” in the training, the magazine reported.
