Ex-Lebanese PM urges Hezbollah to turn in members

Ex-Lebanese PM urges Hezbollah to turn in members

Former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri says Lebanon "will pay the price" for Hezbollah's refusal to turn over four of its members indicted in the 2005 assassination of Hariri's father.
The public comments in a televised interview on Tuesday were the first by Hariri since a U.N.-backed tribunal investigating the murder of his father, former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, indicted the Hezbollah members at the end of last month.
Hariri described current Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati, who was Hezbollah's choice for the position, as an "agent" of the Shiite militant group and urged the government to look for the wanted men.
Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah has vowed never to turn over the four indicted men.
