The link between the murder of former Lebanese PM Rafiq al-Hariri and Bashar Assad has now been identified, at least by the best of circumstantial evidence. Former Syrian Interior Minister and intelligence boss Ghazi Kanaan reportedly has suicided. Kanaan had been questioned by UN investigators looking into the Hariri assassination and, after making a rather despondent phone call to a radio station, killed himself at 11 am. The tongue-in-cheek Al-Jazeera report says that, “It was not clear whether he shot himself.” Apparently, they haven’t yet determined how many times he did so, or whether he was shot trying to escape.
