Political Violence; Again
Again, Lebanon is facing a new act of political violence. Today (Tuesday 21.11.2006) Pierre Gemayel, Minister of Trade and Industry and MP for the Maronite seat in Metn District, was assassinated by gunmen in an eastern suburb of Beirut.
The 34 years old Gemayel, a son of former president Amin Gemayel, comes from a traditional Maronite Christian family. He was a prominent member of the 14th March coalition and a vocal critic of Syrian role in Lebanon.
Lebanon is indeed in the midst of political crisis.
