Hizbullah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem warned Tuesday that there would be risks of an "explosion" in Lebanon if the organization's members were investigated on the murder of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, reported AFP.

"We have nothing to say regarding what we might do if the indictment accuses members of Hezbollah,” Qassem told BBC Arabic in an interview as cited by AFP.“The options are many and it depends on the circumstances at that time,” he said.

“What we do know is that such an indictment is a warning bell equivalent to lighting the fuse, to igniting the wick for an explosion, and is dangerous for Lebanon.”
