Lebanese state prosecutor Saeed Mirza on Saturday denied reports made by one of the Hezbollah members indicted for the assassination of Rafik Hariri that the government in Beirut knows his location but is unable to arrest him, Lebanese newspaper The Daily Star reported.

"The Lebanese authorities know where I live, and if they wanted to arrest me they would have done it a long time ago. Simply, they cannot," said one of the of the accused assassins of the former Lebanese prime minister.

The accused gave an exclusive interview to Time Magazine on Thursday in which he blamed Israel for assassinating Hariri on February 15, 2005, and said he would never turn himself in, nor would Hezbollah ever let him or his comrades go to trial.
