Lebanese PM suspect killer released

A former Lebanese lawmaker who was one of five people detained for questioning into the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was released early Wednesday.

Nasser Qandil, a staunch defender of Syria's influence in Lebanon who was detained at the request of U.N. investigators probing the Feb. 14 killing, told The Associated Press that he was released at 1:30 a.m, according to the AP.

"I don't want to talk about this issue," said Qandil. "The information I gave (the investigators) belongs to the probe."
