Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri pushed back Wednesday against a report claiming he planned to end his support for the U.N.'s Special Tribunal for Lebanon, the body investigating the 2005 assassination of his father, former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
The report, by the pro-Syrian Lebanese newspaper Al-Diyar, quotes Mr. Hariri saying that the Lebanese government will "work to stop the activities of the tribunal and to cancel the work protocol between the government and the tribunal" and that he will resist any indictments, saying, "I have sacrificed a lot and cannot sacrifice more."
