Lebanon PM: it was ‘mistake’ to blame Syria for Hariri death

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri has said it was a mistake to blame Syria for the assassination of his father Rafiq Hariri.

Saad Hariri told a Saudi newspaper his accusations against Syria were political and wrong.

“We made mistakes in some places; at some point we accused Syria of assassinating martyr (Rafiq Hariri) and this was a political accusation,” Hariri told the pan-Arab newspaper Ash-Sharq al-Awsat in an interview published on Monday.

The remarks are a stunning change in rhetoric from the Lebanese leader.

Syria has always denied any role in the killing.
