 USATODAY.com - Lebanon rejects U.N. report on Hariri's death but OKs probe   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Lebanon's pro-Syrian leaders Friday rejected a sharply critical U.N. report blaming Damascus for stoking tensions that may have led to the assassination of former premier Rafik Hariri, but they grudgingly accepted a U.N. investigation into the slaying.
The report embarrassed the Lebanese government and its backers, saying Syria's president personally threatened Hariri with harm for his opposition to Damascus' domination and criticizing Lebanon for a halfhearted investigation into who killed him in a Feb. 14 bombing.
Assad told Hariri at their last meeting in the summer that he "would rather break Lebanon over the heads of Hariri and Jumblatt rather than see his word in Lebanon broken," according to the testimony.
