Investigator Gary Platt's testimony at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon Wednesday detailed the alleged process of selecting a site for the 2005 assassination of Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. Prompted by questioning from Prosecutor Nigel Povoas, Platt detailed a series of alleged movements in the Zouk Mosbeh area, north of Beirut. These, Platt explained, were the only two days in which Ayyash and Badreddine met outside of south Beirut and both were in areas directly connected to routes or locations frequented by Hariri."This junction in Zouk Mosbeh would have been a good place to do it," he said, noting the layout of the roads and ease of concealing a potentially vehicle-borne explosive device.Though he admitted to speculation, Platt said Ayyash and Badreddine may have visited the area to make a final decision about whether or not to plan the attack there.
