The bombing that killed former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri left a blast crater that was over 11 meters wide at the top and nearly 2 meters deep, a forensic expert told judges at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon at a trial hearing Tuesday.Bart Hoogeboom, the expert witness, detailed how he used images taken minutes after the attack, along with later footage and a device that employs laser beams to calculate the size of the buildings surrounding the crime scene in order to measure the size of the crater.The evidence so far has focused on the crime scene, the first segment of a three-part case that prosecutors say will include reams of telecommunications evidence that allegedly shows the suspects carrying out extensive surveillance of the former prime minister, and the alleged roles of the suspects in planning and executing the attack.
