An Internal Security Forces corporal who was part of Rafik Hariri's convoy when it was struck by a massive bomb described the apocalyptic scenes which unfolded in Downtown Beirut after the blast during testimony at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon Tuesday.While five Hezbollah members have been charged with plotting Hariri's assassination and the ensuing cover-up, several members of the Syrian regime have come up repeatedly in witness testimony.The witness initially told the court that two days prior to Hariri's assassination, he had been driving near the Saint George hotel in a friend's car and the car had fallen into a sizeable hole near where men were working.As Hariri was leaving the Cafe de L'Etoile near Parliament, the witness recalled one of Hariri's bodyguards taking him aside.The defense will continue cross-examining the witness tomorrow in court. Another member of the convoy is also scheduled to testify in court later this week.
