The UN Security Council decided Thursday night to form an international committee to investigate the assassination of late Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Harirri.
The resolution 1595, submitted by the U.S., France and the U.K., was approved by the fifteen council members.
‘The security council decided to form an international independent committee to be based in Lebanon in order to help the Lebanese authorities to probe into this terror act and help uncover all parties involved in it’ the resolution says.
The council provided an extendable three months period for the committee to conclude its work.
The resolution also required full cooperation with the committee from the side of all Lebanese related authorities, including allowing the questioning of any official and providing needed information and evidences.
The investigation committee is expected to include 15 teams with various specialties, adding up to 100 persons.
