Hizbullah Members Reportedly Photographed Tribunal Area, Party Denies

France's Le Monde daily reported that Hizbullah members recently took photographs of the area where the headquarters of the international tribunal is located in The Hague.

"Deduce the political conclusions you want," the daily quoted the court's registrar, Robin Vincent, as saying.

Vincent noted that Dutch security services registered three such incidents.

The daily also quoted a Lebanese source as saying that Hizbullah rejected a request by head of the International Independent Investigation Commission Daniel Bellemare to interrogate eight "Hizbullah personalities."

A Hizbullah source, however, denied the report, saying it was completely untrue.

About Bellemare's request, the source said such a request is "in the author's imagination."
