Lebanese woman Myriam al-Ashqar, 28, was found dead and soaked in blood Tuesday in a forestland located between the Keserwan towns of Sahel Alma and Harisa, LBC television reported.
It later appeared that she was killed by the janitor of the Our Lady of the Annunciation monastery in Baqloush, where she went to pray on Monday and where she used to pray several times every other week, LBC said.[Naharnet]
That’s the first time I hear about such a terrible crime in the Keserwan area and more specifically in a monastery. My condolences to Myriam’s family and fiance and hope she rests in peace.
PS: I hope those in charge of monasteries will start hiring people more responsibly from now on following this incident. I also don’t see the need for a janitor in a monastery.
