The investigation into the assassination of Industry Minister Pierre Gemayel three years ago has reached a dead-end after forensic testing on a gun revealed that the rifle wasn't used in the MP's killing, al-Akhbar daily reported Monday.

Well-informed sources said that the international commission investigating ex-Premier Rafik Hariri's murder and related crimes had informed the Lebanese judiciary that forensic tests carried out in the Netherlands revealed that the rifle seized from the home of Fatah al-Islam member Abdel Ghani Jawhar's sister was not used during the shooting at Gemayel and his bodyguards.

Last year, media reports said a suspect told investigators that Jawhar had waved his assault rifle to him and a group of his aides saying "This had been used in assassinating Pierre Gemayel."

As tests from the Netherlands came negative, the probe into Gemayel's assassination went to square one, according to al-Akhbar.

The newspaper said investigators should now focus on the Honda CRV which, according to witnesses, was used by the killers and on the confessions of Fatah al-Islam member A.M.
