The family of slain former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri has welcomed the findings of a UN report which has linked top Syrian and Lebanese security officials with his killing.
Saad Hariri, Rafik Hariri's son and a leader of Syria's opponents in the Lebanese parliament, said in a televised address Saturday from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia that his family is seeking justice, not revenge.
He also called for taking the case before an international tribunal capable of punishing the perpetrators.
In Damascus, the Syrian foreign ministry was expected to hold a nationally-broadcast news conference shortly to discuss the findings of the independent UN team, led by German prosecutor Detlev Mehlis.
Meanwhile, in Beirut, the Cabinet is to meet to discuss the report, which found that the decision to kill Mr. Hariri on February 14 "could not have been taken without the approval of top-ranked Syrian security officials" in collusion with their Lebanese counterparts.
