The foreign ministers of the UN Security Council member states convened Sunday night to decide on the content of the UN report on the assassination of former Lebanese president Rafik Hariri. The council was expected to vote on the issue Monday. Twelve of the fifteen members have already decided to approve the conclusions. Russia, China and Algeria announced they would abstain from voting. The supporting foreign ministers planned on rephrasing the report in a way that would enable the abstainers to support it. Army Radio reported that the report required Syria to cooperate completely with the UN investigators, including allowing the possible questioning and arrest of suspects in and out of Syria.
