Hours after an explosion tore through Downtown Beirut killing Rafik Hariri and 21 others, Al-Jazeera's Beirut Bureau Chief Ghassan Ben Jeddo spoke on the phone with one of the self-professed perpetrators of the attack, the Special Tribunal for Lebanon heard Wednesday.The man spoke fast, in a foreign accent which Ben Jeddo could not quite place, saying that the Nusra and Jihad Group for Greater Syria had killed Hariri.Ben Jeddo told the court Wednesday that the caller spoke for an hour and a half, reading what appeared to be a pre-written claim of responsibility for Hariri's killing.The man, Ben Jeddo told the court, spoke in formal, literary Arabic and seemed ill at ease with the pronunciation.
