New evidence links Hezbollah to the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, according to a Canadian Broadcasting Corp. report.

The evidence of Hezbollah’s link to the 2005 assassination, unearthed by United Nations investigators and a Lebanese police officer, was published Sunday by the CBC following a months-long investigation.

The report accuses the United Nations International Independent Investigation Commission of having important information on the case that it did not pursue, specifically phone records showing Hezbollah officials were in contact with the owners of the cell phones used to coordinate the bomb that killed Hariri.

The Lebanese officer who helped crack the case was killed by a car bomb after his assistance became known.

Syria and pro-Syrian officials have been implicated in the assassination. Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah claims Israel killed Hariri.

The mandate of the U.N. commission has expired, but a special tribunal was named to carry out prosecutions. Indictments are expected by the end of the year, according to The Washington Post.
