ASSAD to UN: I will not talk to you!

ABC News reports that Syria's leader would not discuss the assassination of Lebanon's former prime minister with the UN.

The resolution introduced Tuesday by the United States, France and Britain would require Syria to detain any Syrian official or civilian the U.N. investigators might consider a suspect in Hariri's killing and allow the individual to be questioned outside the country or without Syrian officials present.

It would immediately freeze the assets and impose a travel ban on anyone the commission identified as a possible suspect in the assassination, and if Syria refuses to cooperate, the Security Council would consider "further measures," including economic sanctions.

This should prove to be interesting.
