Rafik Hariri assassination trial to begin

Four members of Hezbollah were indicted in 2013 but they remain fugitives.

    The trial of four men accused of involvement in the murder of Lebanon's former prime minister is due to begin in the Netherlands.

    Rafik Al Hariri was assassinated almost nine years ago.

    The four members of Hezbollah were indicted last year, and will not be present at the hearing and they remain fugitives.
