Beirut - Hezbollah's leader says authorities will never be able to arrest four members of his militant group who have been indicted in the murder of a former Lebanese prime minister.

Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said on Saturday in a televised address that "even in 300 years" the men will not be turned in. The Shi’ite militant group denies any role in the killing.

Nasrallah's speech marked his first comments since the indictment was announced on Thursday. A high-ranking Hezbollah militant and three others were accused in the 2005 assassination of Rafik Hariri.

Narallah insists the tribunal is dominated by America and Israel and calls its decision "an aggression against us and our holy warriors".
