US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has issued a veiled warning to Syria, saying a Lebanon tribunal must be safe while it handles the murder of a Lebanese leader who was a prominent critic of Syrian influence in his country. "One thing we'll be talking about is how to make certain these people can be secure in their work," Rice told reporters on Tuesday after discussing plans for the tribunal with Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora. Asked how outsiders could safeguard the Lebanese tribunal members, Rice noted that supporters of the late prime minister Rafik Hariri blamed Syria and its affiliates for political killings that followed the 2005 assassination. "One thing is to make sure there is a spotlight on the problem of intimidation and the kinds of assassinations that have taken place in Lebanon," Rice said.
