November 6, 2010 01:14

UNITED NATIONS — The UN Security Council is concerned about the recent attack on three staff members of the tribunal set up to prosecute the assassins of Lebanon's former prime minister Rafik Hariri, and supports the court's continued work, France's UN ambassador said Friday.

Ambassador Gerard Araud spoke to reporters after a closed-door briefing by the UN's top legal officer, Patricia O'Brien, on the Oct. 27 attack on the members of the tribunal's investigation team in Beirut.

"We have all expressed our wish that the tribunal is able to continue its action in an independent and effective way," he said.
