Barak refuses to address reporters' questions on Mughniyeh

Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Wednesday would not broach the subject of the assassination of Hizbullah arch-terrorist Imad Mughniyeh, Army Radio reported. According to the report, Hizbullah claims to the effect that Israel had masterminded the alleged assassination did not threaten to sour the atmosphere of his trip to Turkey because the Turks also considered Mughniyeh a military figure.
