Former MP Salim Diab endured a grueling cross examination at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon Friday, as the defense sought to cast him as an unreliable witness.Diab, who was Hariri's electoral campaign manager, testified that on two occasions he had shared information with the U.N. International Independent Investigation Commission (IIIC), the body charged with looking into the massive blast which ripped through Downtown Beirut on Feb. 14, 2005, killing the former prime minister and 21 others.Separately, the family of former MP Adnan Arakji rebutted testimony which Diab gave Thursday. Diab had claimed that the Syrian government compelled Hariri to include the late Arakji on his electoral ticket in the 1996 parliamentary elections.
