President George W. Bush on Friday called on the United Nations to convene a session as soon as possible to deal with the UN investigative report implicating Syrian officials in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. "The report strongly suggests that the politically motivated assassination could not have taken place without Syrian involvement," Bush said after helping dedicate a new pavilion at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Southern California. The UN investigative report, which Bush called "deeply disturbing," established a link between high-ranking Syrian officials and their Lebanese allies in Hariri's murder Feb. 14 in Beirut.
