The Mitsubishi Canter van which was allegedly used as a truck bomb to assassinate Prime Minister Rafik Hariri took center stage at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon Thursday.According to the prosecution's narrative of the assassination, a member of the team directly responsible for coordinating Hariri's assassination purchased the Mitsubishi Canter van on Jan. 25, 2005 . Three weeks later, the truck would be loaded with 2,500 kilograms of TNT equivalent and detonated in Downtown Beirut, killing Hariri and 21 others. Earlier in the day, an ISF officer who was part of Hariri's convoy at the time of the explosion testified that he had not noticed a Mitsubishi Canter van anywhere near the prime minister's vehicle.
