Dirty Assassination in Lebanon

I heard about former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri being killed in a car bomb on NPR this morning. I even heard that people were blaming Syria. What I didn't hear is that Hariri was the vocal leader of a political movement that opposes the current Syrian occupation of Lebanon. He was also a billionaire with close ties to the Saudi royal family.

Read all about it in Hassan Fattah's article in the NYT with contributions from Katherine Zoepf.
