In the News Who Killed Rafiq Hariri?
November 22, 2010
More than five years after the assassination of former prime minister Rafiq Hariri, a riveting investigation by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has uncovered extensive circumstantial evidence linking the murder to Syrian-backed members of Hezbollah.
FRONTLINE/World correspondent Kate Seelye was living in Beirut when Hariri was killed -- she heard the bomb blast from her apartment. The story she reported at that time showed a country back from the brink after years of civil war and thrown into new chaos by Hariri's death. Hundreds of thousands came out to grieve for the billionaire industrialist from the Sunni elite, who had rebuilt large parts of the country and become its modernizing leader.
VIEW here Seelye's report, The Earthquake, where she travels from Beirut to Damascus asking the same probing questions about Hariri's death as the UN-backed tribunal has been charged with.
