BEIRUT — Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah on Wednesday night said that 12 party members and close suppoters of the Shi'ite terrorist group were recently summoned for questioning in connection with the 2005 assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri.

Nasrallah said the 12 were summoned as "witnesses and not as suspects." He added that six more are to be called soon.Last week, security and judicial officials told The Associated Press that a team from the Netherlands-based Special Tribunal for Lebanon has interviewed several Hezbollah members, among dozens of other people.

Nasrallah hinted the group was cooperating with the investigators but did not directly say whether the members had showed up for the interviews. He said the TV interview Wednesday that he would not give details because of secrecy of the investigation.
