Indictments on the 2005 murder of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri are not "a big deal," Lebanon's interior minister was quoted as saying Thursday.

“Why the big deal? It’s just an indictment and not a final verdict. So why all this hubbub?” Lebanese Interior Minister Marwan Charbel asked during a Voice of Lebanon interview, according to The Daily Star.

Charbel said that he hoped the Special Tribunal for Lebanon decision would "satisfy" the Lebanese people.
