A former Internal Security Forces explosives expert told judges at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon that his team found the remains of mortar bombs that were likely mixed with the explosives used to kill former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.Walid Othman, a former Lebanese police officer, said that mortar bomb fragments were found at the crime scene, and were perhaps used in order to add shrapnel damage as Hariri's convoy passed by. If the mortar bomb fragments were indeed found at the crime scene and never delivered, the issue raises the prospect of evidence in the case being tampered with during the investigation.
