Russia demands to know the 10 countries blocking the Hariri inquiry
Syria is blocking the UN inquiry into the assassination of ex-Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Al-Hariri. We kept hearing those words from Bush, Rice and Bolton.
Not any more!
UN investigator Serge Brammertz now says Syria is "fully co-operating" BUT he says TEN countries aren't. He won't name them. Russia is demanding to know the ten countries blocking the UN inquiry - because they might just have something to hide.
Arab media claims the states include France, Britain, the United States, Turkey and Israel. "If [that] information is correct, there is practically no chance that the UN Security Council would finally agree" to demand the names to be made public.
The moves have already been blocked twice by the UK, US and France, but Russia is persisting.
