The Security Council approved a request from Lebanon's prime minister for UN investigators already probing last year's assassination of former prime minister Rafik Hariri to assist the government's investigation of the latest assassination of an anti-Syrian Cabinet minister. The council acted just hours after Secretary-General Kofi Annan sent a letter informing members that Prime Minister Fuad Saniora wanted "technical assistance" from the UN investigation commission in his government's investigation of Tuesday's killing of Industry Minister Pierre Gemayel. "We have decided to respond swiftly," Peru's UN Ambassador Jorge Voto-Bernales, the current council president, told reporters minutes after signing a letter to Annan approving the assistance. "There was no discussion on this issue. Actually all members agreed on this very quickly."
