The leader of Lebanon's Druse community, Walid Jumblatt, urged Syrian President Bashar Assad on Sunday to cooperate with the UN investigation into Rafik Hariri's assassination, saying it was necessary to establish the truth. Giving his first reaction to the UN report on the former Lebanese Prime Minister's killing, Jumblatt also backed a call by Saad Hariri, Rafik's son, for an international court to try those responsible for the Feb. 14 assassination. Jumblatt adopted a soft tone on Syria, telling reporters that the UN report contained "suspicions", not accusations, and said he rejected any international sanctions against the Syrian people.
