Al Hurra claims Michel Kilo was being paid by Hariri

US-funded TV station Al Hurra is reporting that Marwan Hamadeh (a Hariri government minister in Lebanon) has paid Michel Kilo millions of dollars.

He was being funded to work against the Syrian government.

He was due to be released from prison in Syria last Friday. But mysteriously, new charges appeared at the last minute.

Kilo has always tried to distance himself from the US. These claims will undoubtedly damage his standing with other reformists, and with the government.

Al Hurra isn't known for its journalistic strength. And it seems very strange to hear these words on the US propaganda station.
