Sa'ad Al-Hariri calls for International trial

The son of murdered ex-Prime Minister Rafiq Al-Hariri has called for his killers to face an international trial.

He made the announcement on television, even though UN investigator Detlev Mehlis failed to name anyone as a suspect in the murder.

Sa'ad said "we are not seeking revenge, we are seeking justice."

Syria's Deputy Foreign Minister Ahmed Arnus hit back at the US who have called for action against the country, saying the report "puts Syria in the dock and vilifies it without evidence." The Mehlis report was based almost entirely on witness and 'commentator' statements, such as the controversial anti-Syrian editor of the An-Nahar newspaper, Jubran Tuewani.

Meanwhile, Sa'ad has called for renewed ties with Damascus, which he called a 'brotherly nation'.

as for hariri,his wife is syrian from al Azem familly.
Hariri said we want the best relations with the syrian people ,not the killers.

With any sanction against Syria it should stop coperating alow the Arab fighters to go to iraq ,He should never surrender any Syrian for introgation especialy his brother ,the us will stop at nothing untill regeim change for what he said about Israel during the POPe visit to Syria.
