The guy showing his back is a Lebanese called Joseph Abou Fadel. He is presumably a political analyst? The other guy is a member of the Syrian Opposition. I wish they kept filming and showed us the whole fight.

This all sounds great but why did they block the entrance to the O&C Fresh Market? What’s the use of all those piles of concrete blocks separating cars coming from inside Jal el Dib and those coming from the highway?
I’ve heard that there are some violent rape scenes in the movie which have forced theaters to show it at a late hour and then restrict it to one theater, which is really stupid.
There are tons of violent movies out there and I don’t see anyone complaining. Added to that, the movie is apparently great and scored an impressive 8.2 on IMDB. Isn’t it easier to just restrict it to people under 18?
I’ve been to Olio Pizzeria, The Chase restaurant and Empire theaters in Kaslik in the past week and I could not detect 3G in any of them. In fact, I didn’t get even get Edge. Weirdly enough, you get full 3G coverage if you go across the street from Olio to Casper & Gambini’s.
Civil Defense teams succeeded on Saturday in extinguishing a fire that broke out at Beirut Mall in al-Tayyouneh. The fire, which was caused by electrical wire friction, erupted in three power generators at the mall at 9:00 am. [Naharnet]
It looks like a big fire as it erupted at 9:00 am and was only extinguished an hour ago. No news yet on whether the mall was badly damaged or not.
Update: Another fire erupted just now at Beirut Mall which will be closed today.
Update2: Check out pictures of the fire displayed on LBC website.
