BEIRUT - Former Lebanese prime minister Saad Hariri, whose father was killed in a bombing often pinned on Syria, said on Wednesday that Syrian President Bashar Assad was leading a murderous campaign against his own people.

"There is a murderer called Bashar Assad's regime, who commits daily, red-handed, dozens of killings documented in video and audio all over Syria," Hariri, speaking live on camera from abroad to a meeting of his Mustaqbal party in Beirut, said.

Hariri's father, the former statesman Rafik al-Hariri, was killed in a car bomb in 2005 and Syria is often listed as a potential suspect behind the attack, though only four members of Hezbollah have been indicted by an international court.
