Ghassan Ben Jeddo, Al-Jazeera's former Beirut bureau chief, received three cryptic phone calls just hours after Rafik Hariri was killed and may well have spoken to those responsible for the former prime minister's assassination, the Special Tribunal for Lebanon heard Thursday.According to Ben Jeddo, the first call came in around 1:30 p.m., some 35 minutes after a massive car bomb tore through Downtown Beirut, killing Hariri and 21 others.The third caller, Ben Jeddo said, had an unmistakable Lebanese accent.Either Assad Hassan Sabra or Hussein Hassan Oneissi made the first call to Al-Jazeera's offices, perhaps feigning a foreign accent.Members of the defense will continue to cross-examine Ben Jeddo Friday. Defense counsel Guenael Mettraux is poised to continue quizzing Ben Jeddo about the specifics of the phone calls.
