BEIRUT — Lebanese Prime Minister Sa'ad Hariri said Monday that it was a mistake to accuse Syria of being behind the 2005 assassination of his father.

The statement was a major turnaround for Hariri, who for years has blamed Damascus for his father's death in a massive truck bombing in Beirut.

Hariri told the Saudi-owned newspaper Asharq al-Awsat in an interview published Monday that "during a period of time we accused Syria of being behind the assassination ... This was a political accusation, and this political accusation has ended."
