AL QAEDA LINK? HARIRI BOMB USED SAME EXPLOSIVES AS ZARQAWI USES IN IRAQ

The assassins of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri were dispatched from Iraq where they were recruited and trained, investigators said.

Rachid Mezher, the Lebanese investigating judge of the Hariri killing, said the suicide bomber was a Palestinian trained in Iraq and recruited by Ansar Al Islam.

Lebanese sources said the bombing contained explosives similar to Zarqawi suicide strikes in Iraq in 2004.
