Mustafa Badreddine, the alleged "apex" of the team accused of killing former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, was described as a "ghost" by the prosecution of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon Friday as the second day of the historic trial drew to a close.The prosecution further outlined the telecoms evidence it relied on to identify five Hezbollah suspects being tried over the bombing that killed Hariri and 21 other victims. The prosecution team also drew a portrait of Abu Adass, the man they say appeared in a false claim of responsibility for the Feb. 14, 2005, attack in Downtown Beirut. The prosecution began the proceedings by elaborating on an alleged false claim of responsibility in which a man named Abu Adass took credit for the Hariri bombing on behalf of a fictitious group called Nusra and Jihad in Greater Syria.The prosecution says Mohammad and Oneissi are the same man.The prosecution said Abu Adass was most likely dead now.In addition, Salim Ayyash, another suspect in the case, is married to a relative of Badreddine.
