From this error I guess what google news does when looking for quotes is try to find a full name for some last name that is followed by a quote.

Since most of the articles are from foreign news outlets they have a summary on where does Saad Hariri come from containing “Rafik Hariri died in a …” so what google does is that it looks for the full name of a person inside a bunch of articles and assumes he’s the one giving opinions.
