After Beirut Blast and Worst Clashes in Years, Fears Grow for Fate of Lebanon’s Capital – The Wall Street Journal
BEIRUT—Hussein Hamdar sat in the backyard of his building in the shade of a tree and stared at the wall facing him. Forty-five years ago, his grandfather was killed on the other side of the barrier during Lebanon’s civil war, shot in the head by a sniper as he was performing his prayers.
