Lebanese security agents raided the Beirut home of the former head of the army intelligence's wiretapping unit Thursday and took him in for questioning by members of a UN commission probing the assassination of a former premier, security officials said. Col. Ghassan Tufeili was taken to the UN team's headquarters at the hilltop Monteverde Hotel, east of Beirut, where he was questioned for five hours before being released, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the press. They declined to give further details. His detention came upon orders from the head of the UN investigating team, German Prosecutor Detlev Mehlis.
