Defense lawyers at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon suggested that police investigators did not adequately look into the possibility that an underground explosion killed former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.The team worked on the scene of the Hariri assassination and concluded that the bombing that killed the former prime minister was an aboveground explosion.The witness, whose identity was concealed to protect him, said the ISF explosives team determined that a Mitsubishi Canter van was at the center of the explosion after identifying a piece from its engine block found at the bottom of the crater left by the bombing that had been subjected to much higher heat during the explosion than other damaged cars in the vicinity. The ISF concluded that the bomb was above ground, whereas Lebanese Army investigators stuck to the theory that the bomb was below the ground, the witness said.
