Latest update : 2009-05-26

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah (pictured) on Monday denounced a report in Der Spiegel linking his group to the assassination of former Lebanese premier Rafiq Hariri as "very, very dangerous" and accused Israel of being behind it.

AFP - Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah on Monday denounced a report implicating his party in the killing of Lebanese ex-premier Rafik al-Hariri as "very, very dangerous" and accused Israel of being behind it.
   
"The report in Der Spiegel is very, very, very dangerous," Nasrallah said in comments transmitted via video link to thousands of supporters massed in Hezbollah's stronghold in Beirut's southern suburbs.
   
"I consider the report in Der Spiegel an Israeli accusation that Hezbollah killed the martyr Rafik al-Hariri and we will deal with this claim as such," he said.
   
Nasrallah was speaking on the the ninth anniversary of the withdrawal of Israeli troops from southern Lebanon after 22 years.
