Hariri murder: suspect named

An ally of Lebanese President Emile Lahoud, Mustafa Hamdan, is suspected of the murder of Rafiq Al-Hariri.

Hamdan is the head of the presidential guard, and was named by the head of the UN investigation into the murder.

In other news, the composition of the new Lebanese government has become clear. 13 of the 24 member cabinet are pro-Syria, an indication that opposition-leader, Siniora is seeking a close relationship with neighbouring Syria.

It's a positive step following weeks of petty arguments between the two neighbours. Lebanese truck drivers blame Syria for excessive delays. And today Syria discovered weapons at the border. Syria is also seeking compensation for the Syrian civilians murdered in Beirut in the days after Hariri's murder.

SNW, very interesting.
