The leader of Hizbullah said Sunday that evidence believed to be held by UN investigators implicating his militant group in the death of a former Lebanese prime minister is worthless.

The Netherlands-based tribunal investigating the 2005 killing of Rafik Hariri is expected to issue indictments possibly as soon as this month.

The court has kept silent on possible suspects but several media reports including a May 2008 report by Germany's Der Spiegel magazine said the court will indict Hezbollah members based mainly on the analysis of mobile phone calls in the run-up to Hariri's assassination.

Nasrallah has also said he expects members of his group to be indicted, but has dismissed the court as biased and an "Israeli project."
