Lebanon prosecutor amends Hariri Tribunal indictment

AMSTERDAM - The prosecutor at the UN-backed Lebanon tribunal filed an amended indictment on Friday in the 2005 killing of former prime minister Rafik al-Hariri after new evidence emerged, which could further delay the process.
The Lebanon tribunal, the world's first international court with jurisdiction over the crime of terrorism, was set up to try those accused over the 2005 bombing that killed Hariri and 22 others.
In a statement on Friday, the prosecutor said an indictment that was filed on March 11 was replaced to "include substantive new elements unavailable until recently". A prosecutor spokeswoman declined to comment on what those elements were.
