Four arrest warrants issued for murder of former Lebanon PM

Four arrest warrants have been issued by the UN-backed tribunal investigating the murder of Lebanon's former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

Local reports say the sealed warrants name senior members of Hezbollah, the powerful Shia militant and political group.

Hezbollah has repeatedly denounced the tribunal and vowed to retaliate.
