Hezbollah and its allies boycotted the latest round of Lebanon's national dialogue on Thursday because of tensions surrounding a UN tribunal's investigation of the 2005 assassination of a former prime minister.

Many fear there could be violence in coming months if the UN court probing the truck bombing that killed Rafik Hariri and 22 others indicts members of the militant Hezbollah, a Shiite force that accuses the tribunal of bias.
