Listen to the story.

In 2005, former Lebanon Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was killed in a bombing along Beirut's seafront. Some suspected Syrian agents, militant group Hezbollah, or both. A United Nations-backed court has been investigating the incident, and may now hand out indictments of Hezbollah members. In response, the group ? which has a strong presence in the country ? has threatened to withdraw from the government, threatening a collapse. For more on this story and its implications, we're joined now by Borzou Daragahi, Beirut bureau chief for the L.A. Times. Rami Khouri, director of Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and international affairs, and editor of The Daily Star Newspaper, also speaks with us.
