LONDON — The United Kingdom is giving a further £1 million ($1.6 million) to a UN-backed tribunal set up to prosecute the assassins of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri.

Foreign Secretary William Hague urged other nations to support the court, saying justice "is the only way to ensure long term stability" in Lebanon.

The tribunal was set up in 2007 to solve the 2005 assassination of Hariri in a Beirut truck bombing.

It has ignited fears in Lebanon that indictments could re-ignite hostilities between the Shi'ite and Sunni communities, particularly if Hizbullah party members are implicated in the assassination of the prominent Sunni leader.

The latest commitment, announced Monday, brings Britain's contribution to £2.3 million ($3.7 million). The United States has already given $30 million.
