Syria has indicated it might not cooperate with a tribunal to prosecute the suspected killers of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, saying it was not officially consulted on the plan, a letter showed Friday. An ongoing UN investigation into the February 2005 truck bombing that killed Hariri and 22 others has said the killing's complexity suggested the Syrian and Lebanese intelligence services played a role in the assassination. Syria, which has denied involvement, said in a letter circulated Friday at UN headquarters that the tribunal should not be arranged until after the investigation is finished. It announced that hasty adoption of the court's statute "will firmly establish our belief that Syria has no connection with this tribunal."
