STL prosecutor Danielle Bellmare, after filing the indictment last night:

“According to the Rules of the Tribunal, I cannot reveal either the charges or the name of the person or persons referred to in the indictment.
This continued confidentiality is essential as I cannot presume that the Pre-Trial Judge will confirm the indictment. If it is confirmed, the content of the document will be made public in due course and when so ordered by the Pre-Trial Judge.”

How long? A month or two. It seems Lebanon has a long way to go until forming a new government. Why does it have to be a big mess all the time?
