Questioning begins in Vienna of four Syrians regarding Hariri murder

Questioning of four Syrians will begin on Monday in Vienna as part of the ongoing UN investigation into the assassination of former Lebanese premier Rafiq Hariri.

The four include Lieutenant General Rustom Ghazali, Syria's former intelligence chief in Lebanon, and Hosam Hosam, who had previously implicated Syrian officials in the case before retracted his testimony and fleeing to Syria, according to Reuters.

Ghazali, who had previously been identified as a suspect, had undergone an earlier round of questioning.

Syria has denied any involvement in the February 14 explosion in Beirut which took the lives of Hariri and 22 others. It has also refused to allow UN investigators to question Syrian President Bashar Al Assad.

The United States had accused Syria of obstructing the UN investigation and urged last week that it cooperate with the investigative team or else risk action by the UN Security Council.

The U.N. Security Council also passed a resolution last October demanding that Syria cooperate with the investigation or face action of the council.
