Rafik Al-Hariri Killed

A massive car bomb killed Lebanon's former prime minister Rafik al-Hariri on Beirut's waterfront Monday, witnesses and security sources said. At least eight others, some of them his bodyguards, also died.
Hariri's motorcade was blown up as it passed along an exclusive section of the city's waterfront Corniche.
It appeared to be the biggest bomb in the city since the Lebanese civil war ended in 1990. The blast could be heard even outside Beirut's city limits and shattered windows in buildings hundreds of meters away.
