Assassinated

Political murder in Lebanon

In Lebanon's post-war history, political murder has targeted many political leaders, activists and journalists. Most of the assassinations have never been brought to justice. In 2011 United Nations's Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) is supposed to prosecute persons for the death of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri. The pro-western Alliance supports investigations whereas Hizbollah strictly refuses any co-operation with the tribunal.
