Putin tells Hariri to shutup
Russian leader Vladimir Putin has told his close friend Sa'ad Al Hariri not to blame Syria for the assassination of Francois Hajj.
Hajj was an anti-Hariri figure, who lead the summer attacks on the Hariri-funded Fateh Al Islam.
Senior figures in Hariri's March 14 movement have already started to blame Fateh Al Islam - even leading anti-Syrian MP Boutrous Harb says it wasn't Syria. Even Junblatt is keeping his mouth shut.
But Hariri insists it was Syria. Now he's been knocked into line by Putin.
