Four arrest warrants have been issued by the UN-backed tribunal investigating the 2005 murder of Lebanon's former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

Local reports say the warrants name senior members of the Shia militant and political group Hezbollah which has repeatedly denounced the tribunal and vowed to retaliate.

The Special Tribunal for Lebanon has confirmed the indictment and arrest warrants were delivered to the State Prosecutor.

The contents of the indictment have not been publicized.
