Lebanon marks fifth anniversary of Hariri assassination





Thousands of people have gathered in Lebanon's capital, Beirut, to mark the fifth anniversary of the killing of its former prime minister, Rafik Hariri.

He had been campaigning against Syrian involvement in Lebanon when he was killed with 21 others in a bombing.

Public protests led Syria to withdraw its troops after a 29-year deployment.
