LEIDSCHENDAM, Netherlands — A UN tribunal said it carried out a controlled explosion on Tuesday at a French military base as part of its investigation into the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri.

The Special Tribunal for Lebanon said the explosion at the Captieux military base in southwest France was watched by a team of international experts who will carry out forensic tests.

The court said in a statement their results will form part of the investigation, but said Tuesday's blast was not a crime reconstruction.

A truck bomb killed Hariri and 22 other people on Beirut's Mediterranean waterfront on Feb. 14, 2005. A billionaire businessman, Hariri was Lebanon's most prominent politician after the country's devastating 15-year civil war ended in 1990.
