The international tribunal dealing with the killing of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri of Lebanon has charged two leading Lebanese journalists with contempt of court and obstruction of justice over the publication of confidential information about possible witnesses for the prosecution.  

The two journalists — Ibrahim al-Amin, the editor of Al Akhbar, and Karma al-Khayat, the deputy head of news of Al Jadeed TV — have been summoned to appear before the court on May 13, the Special Tribunal for Lebanon said in a statement issued Thursday.
