Syria: Hariri committee calls on people with info

A Syrian judicial committee investigating the assassination of a former Lebanese prime minister called Friday for the public's help, urging anyone with information related to the Feb. 14 bombing to come forth, Syria's official news agency said. The call came a day after the committee, headed by Syrian Prosecutor-General Ghada Murad, met for the first time since President Bashar Assad ordered its creation on Oct. 29. Murad, in a statement Thursday, said the committee had begun its work by reviewing Mehlis' initial report to the Security Council last month and said it would coordinate with the U.N. investigation and Lebanese judicial authorities. It called on anyone who has information on the killing to contact the Syrian committee. On Friday, the committee announced its headquarters in Damascus and provided telephone and fax numbers as well as an e-mail address. The details were published by SANA.
