Amir Hariri told reporters they were not sure why they were called in for questioning as the rally was peaceful.

"This not only wastes the media's time but also our time and the time of the authorities who are investigating this matter.

"We will go in and find out just why we have been called to have our statements recorded.

"Once we are done we will address the media again," he said.
