New tests corroborate the theory that former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was killed in a massive suicide truck bomb, investigators said in a report Monday. The report from Belgian prosecutor Serge Brammertz's investigators said that Syria - which had been accused of obstructing the probe - has been generally cooperative in its investigation of the February 14, 2005 bombing that killed Hariri and 22 others. Investigators had suspected for some time that Hariri was killed by a bomb packed into a Mitsubishi minivan and detonated by a suicide attacker. According to the report, new tests corroborate the theory that a man either inside or just in front of the van detonated the bomb, which was probably close to 1,800 kilograms (3,960 pounds).
