BEIRUT - Lebanese banks have paid the government's $32 million share of the costs of a UN-backed court investigating the killing of statesman Rafik Hariri, in a bid to ease bitter tensions over the tribunal's funding.

Bowing to international pressure, the Lebanese government paid for its share of the court costs in November despite objections by the powerful political party and terrorist group Hezbollah, which does not recognize the court.

The tribunal has indicted four members of Hezbollah.
