BEIRUT - Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri made a verbal attack on the Shi'ite militant group Hezbollah on Tuesday and said its possession of arms was at the root of conflict in Lebanon.

Hariri, raising the intensity of his opposition to Hezbollah, which with its allies toppled his government in January, said indictments issued by the UN-backed tribunal seeking the killers of his father and which accuses four members of the Hezbollah, would never be changed.

"If (Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan) Nasrallah comes out in 300 press conferences, (he) will not change the content of the indictments," he told a Lebanese television channel from Paris.

"There are people accused (in the killings) and they must be put on trial," he said.
