The Jerusalem Post reports:
Officials at the highest levels in Syria and Lebanon organized the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri, according to the Kuwaiti newspaper a-Siasa.
The report revealed that two high-ranking Syrian generals – including Syrian president Bashar Assad’s brother-in-law, Brig. Gen. Asef Shawkat, whom he appointed Friday to head military intelligence – and a Lebanese general.
UPDATE. In other hmmm news, Franco Aleman has an update on last week’s Madrid skyscraper fire. Turns out a torch-wielding mob may have been involved.
Bloggers, probably. You know what we’re like.
UPDATE II. The Telegraph reports:
Assassins who killed Rafik Hariri, the former Lebanese prime minister, travelled from Iraq through Syria to carry out the attack, according to the Beirut judge leading the inquiry into the bombing.
Rachid Mezher, the senior investigator for the Lebanese military tribunal, said that the organisers had been recruited from Islamist groups linked to Syria and operating against the US-led coalition in Iraq.
