Semi-official Saudi Arabian sources recently informed Syria that Prosecutor in the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, Daniel Bellemare, is expected to postpone issuing the indictment in the investigation into the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri until March, reported Al-Akhbar Saturday from informed sources.

They added that prominent Lebanese sides have also been informed of this in recent days.

They attributed the delay to further research needed by the international investigation.

The paper added that the possible postponement came amid new reports from prominent Arab and western intelligence that extremists similar to Al-Qaida may have been behind Hariri's assassination and not Hizbullah.

Other intelligence still maintain that undisciplined Hizbullah members were behind the crime, it noted.
