It was not unusual that Talal Nasser was with Rafik Hariri on Feb. 14, 2005, his wife Ihsan explained. As the officer in charge of the former premier's team of bodyguards, Nasser had spent the better part of his life shadowing Hariri. On the day of the fateful terrorist attack that would claim his life, Ihsan said, he was with Hariri because it was his job. Talal and Ihsan were the sort of couple that habitually checked in with the other throughout the day. At the time, Ihsan was in denial, and wanted to be alone.Nine years after Hariri's assassination, as the Special Tribunal for Lebanon prepares to commence the trial in the case of Ayyash et al., the events of that day are still fresh for the families of the victims of the attack and those who were there to witness it. Ihsan, like many others, hopes that the trial will finally give them some answers and bring them justice. Ihsan will be one among some 65 victims participating in the trial being held in The Hague.For Ihsan Nasser, the Dec. 27 attack was one of many "local complications" that no longer daunts her.
