The Foreign Ministry on Tuesday dismissed Hizbullah head Hassan Nasrallah's speech last night as "ridiculous lies" after Nasrallah presented what he called proof that Israel was behind the 2005 assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri.

As proof of his theory, Nasrallah produced a tape of a man named Ahmed Nasrallah, who had been arrested in 1996 for allegedly spying for Israel. “I met someone who worked with Rafik Hariri and I told him that Hizbullah wants to kill him (Hariri),” the man was heard saying in the tape, referring to an apparent attempt to turn Hariri against Hizbullah.
