Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, has given what he called evidence implicating Israel in the assassination of Rafiq al-Hariri, the late Lebanese prime minister.

In a televised speech, Nasrallah said Israel was trying to promote political instability inside the country with the killing of Hariri. The Hezbollah leader added that this was part of a plot that goes back as far as the early 1990s.

In the speech, Nasrallah showed footage allegedly intercepted from Israeli surveillance planes, saying Israel stalked out Hariri's routes. The video clips and aerial images revealed the site of Hariri's murder taken before the 2005 assassination took place.
 
But has Nasrallah convinced anyone at all?
