The UN-backed tribunal investigating the murder of Rafiq al-Hariri, the former Lebanese prime minister, has issued its long-awaited indictment.

However, the names of the suspects will not be made public until a judge decides if there is enough evidence for a trial.

It is widely expected that members of Hezbollah - which last week pulled out of the government - will be named.
