The chief UN investigator into the assassination of a former Lebanese premier, armed with new powers from the Security Council, has summoned six senior Syrian intelligence officers, including President Bashar Assad's brother-in-law, for questioning, a Lebanese official said Saturday. The official, close to the UN team investigating Hariri's killing, said chief UN investigator Detlev Mehlis sent the summons to the Syrian government via the United Nations on Wednesday. "Mr. Mehlis has sent a letter to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan demanding to question at least six Syrian officials," the official told The Associated Press. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media on the sensitive issue.
