The judiciary issued an arrest warrant in absentia Wednesday for a Lebanese journalist accused of "inciting murder" against collaborators with Israel on social media. Beirut Investigative Judge Farid Ajib issued the warrant against journalist Hasan Illeik, who works for the pro-Hezbollah Al-Akhbar newspaper, over posting a status on his Facebook account calling for the "punishment" of Israeli agents.A judicial source told The Daily Star that Ajib had summoned Illeik several times, and eventually issued the arrest warrant after the journalist failed to show up for questioning.
