Syria welcomes UN investigation into Hariri death

Syria says it 'welcomes' the UN investigation into Rafiq Hariri's death.

After his assassination last Monday fingers were pointed at Syria. They became the most likely suspects because Hariri resigned as Lebanese Prime Minister last year amid differences with his neighbour.

Not only did Syria deny involvement but they acknowledged what a tragedy the death was for Syria too. Despite recent differences, Hariri was a long-time supporter of Syria, and mediated in disputes with France and the US.

George W. Bush has capitalised on anti-Syria sentiment in the past seven days, repeatedly referring to what he calls Syria's "occupation" of Lebanon.
