Prosecutors at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon painted Wednesday an ominous and mysterious image of a Hezbollah suspect accused of involvement in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, describing him as a ruthless, cruel operative and a "key player" in the infamous attack.Cameron was speaking of a claim of responsibility that was aired shortly after Hariri's assassination on Feb. 14, 2005, in which a man called Ahmad Abu Adass took credit for it on behalf of a group called Nusra and Jihad in Greater Syria. Prosecutors say Abu Adass was coerced since his DNA was never found at the crime scene, and so could not have been the suicide bomber who carried out the attack. Cameron offered a glimpse into the telecommunications data that the prosecution will use at trial, describing key moments such as Merhi's accomplice meeting with Abu Adass, and on the day of the attack when Sabra and Oneissi traveled from south Beirut to deliver the tape and claim of responsibility to media outlets.The hearing was attended by Yasma Fleihan, the widow of MP Bassil Fleihan, who died from the wounds sustained in the attack.
