Frustration at the slow progress of the cross-examination of prosecution communications analyst Andrew Donaldson by defense counsel for Assad Sabra, accused of complicity in the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, came to the surface Thursday. President of the Trial Chamber Judge David Re was visibly exasperated when the day's proceedings came to an end and defense counselor David Young stated he needed several further hours to question the witness. Young pointed out that 24 individuals had been questioned regarding the number ending 018 that Donaldson attributed to Sabra. None of them, as Donaldson confirmed, had positively attributed the number to Sabra.Much of the latter part of Thursday's session was spent by Young querying why two other suspects, referred to as "Alternative User One" and "Alternative User Two," had been ruled out early on in the investigation.
