BEIRUT Aug 17 (Reuters) - Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said an indictment accusing four members of the militant Shi'ite group of taking part in killing statesman Rafik al-Hariri contained "no direct evidence" against them.

Nasrallah was responding to the publication earlier on Wednesday of the indictment, which was based in large part on analysis of telephone records in the months leading up to Hariri's February 2005 assassination. (Reporting by Dominic Evans)
