The International Criminal Tribunal for Lebanon, established on 1 March 2009 at the initiative of the Security Council, examines the results of the International Commission of Inquiry for the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, based in The Hague, the Netherlands.
Earlier in the day, Nasrallah said that some circles in the coalition of March 14 were the real reason for delaying the formation of the Lebanese government, that the international tribunal would soon issue resolutions that would result in a "new situation" in Lebanon.

"Do not play with fire," Nasrallah said.
